New Contract: Real-time Evaluation of Norway’s International Climate and Forest Initiative – Synthesis Evaluation

The Real-time Evaluation of Norways’s International Climate and Forest Initiative has reached the Synthesis Evaluation phase.

The aim of this assignment is to determine the results of NICFI towards achievement of its core objectives over the period from 2007-2013. The assessment covered the four most established bilateral partnerships (Brazil, Guyana, Indonesia and Tanzania), which provide good coverage of country level results-based partnerships, including readiness progress, MRV and financial mechanisms. This sample also contains a range of ecological contexts (from rain forest to dry forest) and a range of country positions along the forest transition curve.

The assessment also included NICFI’s support to multilateral REDD+ institutions (the Congo Basin Forest Fund, Forest Carbon Partnership Facility; Forest Investment Program, UN-REDD Programme); NICFI’s support to civil society institutions through its dedicated civil society grant scheme, and NICFI activities focused on the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change REDD+ negotiations.

Information was analysed and results synthesised across each country and modality of NICFI support to generate an assessment of overall achievement against the NICFI core objectives. In addition, findings of a strategic nature on REDD+, and NICFI’s place within the REDD+ arena, where identified, with a view to informing discussions on the future strategy of NICFI.
