The Global Environment Facility (GEF) is a financial mechanism that provides grant and concessional funds to recipient countries for projects and activities to protect the global environment. The governance structure of the GEF includes an Assembly, a Council, a Secretariat, a Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel and an Independent Evaluation Office. Projects financed by the GEF are managed by 18 GEF Agencies. The GEF Evaluation Office is functionally independent of, but administratively supported by, the World Bank. It is independent from the CEO of the GEF and reports directly to the GEF Council. The GEF Council decides on M&E policies, discusses four year rolling work plans, approves annual budgets, and receives all evaluation reports.
The Independent Evaluation Office (GEFIEO) has the central role of ensuring the independent evaluation function within the GEF; of setting minimum requirements for monitoring and evaluation; of ensuring oversight of the quality of M & E systems on program and project level and of sharing evaluative evidence within the GEF. The Office has the responsibility for undertaking independent evaluations which involve a set of projects from more than one GEF Agency. These evaluations are typically on a strategic level, or on focal areas, or on cross-cutting themes.
The GEF IEO is based in Washington DC and all contracts with the Office are World Bank contracts. More information about the IEO can be found at Office’s website: www.gefieo.org
