Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

Strengthen the project results framework and monitoring system:

a) Establish clear definitions of what is measured with the indicators to improve clarity and avoid double representing of results towards different indicators.

b) Define the monitoring frequency

c) Establish the responsibility for data collection and sources of information.

2

Expand tracking of gender results across the project based on existing good practices and lessons learned for monitoring gender responsive actions implemented through UN-REDD. In particular, it is recommended to:

a) Include gender in monitoring frameworks for new initiatives (e.g., NYDF) in a way in which results can be compared and aggregated across initiatives. This could also build on the work streams to support gender equality and the empowerment of women established in the PRODOC.

3

Enhance efforts to support activities focused on REDD+ implementation and finance. Scaling efforts for halting deforestation are urgently needed. The MTE found that an increased focus on implementation will be needed going forward, and specifically in supporting implementation of policies and measures designed, putting in place sustainable financing mechanisms for REDD+ NS/AP. Thus, it is recommended to:

a) Continue to explore financing mechanisms and strategies as well as opportunities to support the development of financial packages to help countries scale up implementation of NDCs.

b) Strengthen efforts to increase knowledge and capacities of countries and states/jurisdictions on carbon markets and results-based finance.

c) Continue efforts to identify sources of finance for all activities under output 3.

 

4

Integration with the broader work with the NCE and the GPN has improved over time but needs to continue to systematically identify synergies and opportunities of collaboration across UNDP teams. In particular, it is recommended to:

a) Conduct dissemination of results achieved and lessons learned on developing innovative projects with different sources of finance to foster alignment and identify synergies between the Climate and Forests Programme, the UNDP Climate promise initiative and the Sustainable Finance Hub.

b) Conduct dissemination of results achieved and lessons learned on gender equality and the empowerment of women to continue fostering alignment across cross-cutting areas within UNDP.
