A mid-term review was completed by September 2013, and a follow-up project has been endorsed and financed by CIDA with a focus on climate change and food security. 2. Project objectives and expected outputs The project’s goal is to ensure that water availability, supply and quality are maintained in the face of changed climatic conditions. The project objective is to increase resilience and enhance key adaptive capacity to address the additional risks posed by climate change to the water sector in Cape Verde. In order to achieve the above objective, and based on a barrier analysis, the project’s intervention has been organised in three components under which three ‘outcomes’ are expected from the project: Outcome 1: Climate change risks and adaptation measures integrated into key national policies, plans and programs for water resource management. Outcome 2 : Small and medium scale climate change adaptation practices for water resource management are demonstrated and implemented in selected hydrographical basins. Outcome 3: Lessons learned and best practices from pilot activities, capacity development initiatives and policy changes are disseminated. Outcome 1 will deal with the ‘governance framework’ for climate change adaptation. The fact that climate risk, vulnerability and adaptation measures are only superficially integrated (or mainstreamed) in policies, plans and programs is a symptom of incipient and limited capacity of key stakeholders at the 2
national level to plan in response to climate change. Outcome 2 will, in turn, show how pilot demonstration investment at the site level can make a difference in terms of improving resilience locally. Overall, the lessons learnt and experiences acquired under Outcomes 1 and 2 will be disseminated across Cape Verde and to other countries through actions foreseen under Outcome 3 3. Final Evaluation objectives Project evaluations assess the efficiency and effectiveness of a project in achieving its intended results. Terminal evaluation is expected as well to assess the relevance and sustainability of outputs as contributions to medium-term and longer-term outcomes. For GEF Secretariat, TE promotes accountability for achievement of GEF objectives through the assessment of results, effectiveness, processes, and performance of the partners involved in GEF activities. The TE will be conducted according to the guidance, rules and procedures established by UNDP and GEF as reflected in the UNDP Evaluation Guidance for GEF Financed Projects. The objectives of the evaluation are to assess the achievement of project results, and to draw lessons that can both improve the sustainability of benefits from this project, and aid in the overall enhancement of UNDP programming.
