This assignment evaluated four Darwin Initiative projects that were closed. This presented an opportunity to evaluate the sustainability and legacy that have emerged from the achievements since the official end of the projects at Country level. In terms of awareness raising, findings have helped to inform relevant institutions about critical conservation issues within specialist groups. The profile of the initiativeâs purpose has also been raised through the use of Darwin Initiative logos and materials in websites, posters, presentations, publications. However, only one project was recognized as being part of the Darwin Initiative by various external stakeholders, this raises questions on the low profile that the Darwin Initiative has in Peru outside the remit of host country institutions and their partners.
