NAMA Facility - 2nd Interim Evaluation and Learning - Final Report Published

The 2nd NAMA Facility Interim Evaluation report has been published, in addition to the management response to the recommendations raised in the evaluation. 

The purpose of the second evaluation of the NAMA Facility was to provide the NAMA Facility’s Donors and the Technical Support Unit with validation as to whether they are on the right track in: selecting NAMA Support Projects (NSPs), disseminating learning from the Facility and in supporting a transformation to a low-carbon society. The Interim Evaluation of the NAMA Facility ensures the NAMA Facility is accountable and open to continuous learning. These two factors are part the NAMA Facility's working approach to catalyse transformational change through incremental monitoring processes that allow fearless learning. The evaluation looked at: 

  • External perspectives on the NAMA Facility, including the role of the NAMA Facility within the wider climate finance architecture;  

  • The effectiveness of its current strategy and ‘branding’ and the role of the NAMA Facility as a learning hub;  

  • The effectiveness and efficiency of the governance and management frameworks and processes, particularly to the extent that they help the NAMA Facility to contribute to transformational change at a global and NSP-level;  

  • The relevance, effectiveness and efficiency of the NSP selection processes, particularly in terms of facilitating the NAMA Facility’s overall contribution to transformational change.  

As part of the evaluation, the team also assessed the appropriateness of the NAMA Facility’s Theory of Change (ToC).The evaluation report also features five case studies.   

The Interim Evaluation was carried out between March 2020 and February 2021 by Ipsos MORI in partnership with SQ Consult on behalf of the Donors of the NAMA Facility and the Technical Support Unit.   

The evaluation complements a series of NAMA Support Project (NSP)-level evaluations, which are being conducted by the NAMA Facility Evaluation and Learning teams (ELE) from 2020 to 2025.
