The Independent Evaluation Officeâs mission is to enhance global environmental benefits through excellence, independence, and partnership in monitoring an evaluation.
The GEF Independent Evaluation Office has the central role of ensuring the independent evaluation function within the GEF: Sets minimum requirements for M&E,
ensures oversight of the quality of M&E systems at program and project levels, and shares evaluative evidence within the GEF.
The Office is responsible for undertaking independent evaluations that involve a set of projects from more than one Implementing or Executing Agency.
The GEF Independent Evaluation Office supports knowledge sharing and follow-up of evaluation recommendations. It works with the GEF Secretariat and the GEF Agencies to establish systems to disseminate lessons learned and best practices emanating from M&E activities and provides independent evaluative evidence to the GEF knowledge base.
