Contract Award: Mid-Term Evaluation of the NAMA Facility

The NAMA Facility, officially announced by Germany and the United Kingdom (UK) at the eighteenth session of the Conference of the Parties (COP18) in Doha with combined funding of €120m, is now into its third year.  Denmark and the European Commission (EC) have since contributed €25m and an additional £75m of UK International Climate Fund (ICF) funding was approved in 2015. The NAMA Facility is managed by a Technical Support Unit (TSU) jointly run by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and KfW. The German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) and UK Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) sit on the Facility’s Board, which approves funding for the implementation of NAMA Support Projects (NSPs).

GIZ has contracted LTS International to carry out a Mid-term Evaluation (MTE) of the NAMA Facility. The objective is to analyse and improve the understanding of:

  • The strengths and weaknesses of the NAMA Facility at all levels (governance, TSU, NSP pipeline and portfolio)
  • The relevance of the NAMA Facility to different stakeholders: beneficiaries and recipient countries, to Donors, to Delivery Organisations.
  • How the management of implementation of the NAMA Facility can be further improved, including answering questions related to the funding modalities (e.g. looking at global competitive bids and how they have worked and not worked
