FCPF Final Evaluation Report

FCPF Final Evaluation Report

Jan 13, 2021

Funded by the World bank and implemented by UNDP from 2015 to 2020 (in two phases), the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) REDD+ Readiness Project aimed at getting Papua New Guinea ready for implementing the REDD+.

The project’s relevance has been assessed as very satisfactory as:

  • The project is aligned with national strategies, PNG international commitments, in particular through the UNFCCC the Paris Agreement, the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (2018-2022) for PNG and UNDP Strategic plan.
  • The project design is based on the lessons learnt from UN-REDD programme (2011 – 2017), which has been the main project supporting REDD+ readiness in the country prior to the FCPF projects.
  • National ownership of the project is good, through the involvement of CCDA and PNGFA as national counterparts, the engagement of other key national agencies and of a wide range of stakeholders. CCDA has been associated to the management of the project, in particular thanks to the project team being housed in CCDA building and a system of pairing connecting each UNDP project’s staff with a CCDA staff.

While the project was very ambitious, project delivery has been good, and its effectiveness can be deemed satisfactory. The REDD+ Warsaw framework is now in place in PNG enabling the country to effectively participate in REDD+.
