Launch Event and Webinar

Dear Colleagues,

Please join our panel as they discuss the findings of the recently completed Joint GEF / UNDP Impact Evaluation of GEF Support to Protected Areas and Protected Area Systems

The most comprehensive evaluation of its kind, this impact evaluation of GEF support to protected areas worldwide includes both qualitative and quantitative evaluation approaches. It draws on evidence from global databases on protected area management effectiveness tracking tools, species population time series, and remote sensing of forest cover, but also draws on in-depth evidence from visits to seven countries and 28 protected areas. The evaluation was done jointly by the GEF and UNDP Independent Evaluation Offices in collaboration with the Global Land Cover Facility at the University of Maryland, the Institute of Development Studies, the IUCN WCPA-SSC Joint Task Force on Biodiversity, the National Commission of Biodiversity and Knowledge in Mexico, and NASA.
