Study of GEF's overall performance (English)

The report presents the findings and recommendations of the Study of the Overall Performance of the Global Environment Facility (GEF), which was requested by the GEF Council at its October 1996 meeting. The study focused on a set of issues related to institutions, procedures, policies and programming of the GEF. Priority recommendations were identified for the following issues: (a) provision of resources for the global environment; (b) issues at the country level; (c) institutional issues; (d) GEF project cycle procedures; (e) programming issues; and (f) follow up to the pilot phase evaluation. This study is explicitly directed at a set of issues related to the performance of GEF in terms of institutions, procedures, and policies. Since the restructuring, a number of concerns regarding the GEF's identity, internal organization and project development procedures have been addressed. Thus, the study team identified indicators of performance in different areas of activity - from the effectiveness of the GEF Focal Point System in recipient countries to the effectiveness of the institutional structure to the degree of mainstreaming of the global environment in the regular operations of the three Implementing Agencies.
