Terminal Evaluation for Greening the Logistics Industry in Zhejiang Province (GLIZP)
Commissioning Unit: China
Evaluation Plan: 2021-2025
Evaluation Type: Project
Completion Date: 10/2021
Unit Responsible for providing Management Response: China
Documents Related to overall Management Response:  
1. Recommendation:

Finalize project completion report: The experiences by the project have a remarkable potential for replication within China and abroad. The approaches to the promotion of green logistics pioneered by the project could be readily upscaled with support from national governments, national or multilateral development banks, and sources of international climate finance such as the Green Climate Fund. The evaluation team recommends that to contribute to the achievement of this potential, the project team finalizes a comprehensive and well-written project completion report. The report should provide a critical review of the project experiences, emphasizing lessons learned, and opportunities for improvement by subsequent replication initiatives. The completion report should be professionally translated and be widely disseminated, with support from UNDP

2. Recommendation:

The terminal evaluation concluded that it is likely that project results will remain after the project’s end. However, there is no formal plan to secure that this will be the case. Also, the sustainability of some specific elements of the project’s strategy is more uncertain – for example, the provision of technical assistance to small- and medium-sized logistics services providers –. The evaluation team recommends that the project team convenes project stakeholders to discuss and adopt an exit strategy that clarifies the objectives and roles for the continuous support to the adoption of green logistics technologies and practices after project closure.

Management Response: [Added: 2021/09/23]

Partially agree. The project office has formulated a sustainable action plan after the project ends and will continue to track the green logistics actions of relevant enterprises.

3. Recommendation:

Strengthen Reporting Processes: UNDP has an opportunity to review and strengthen its role in supporting project teams monitoring and reporting project progress. The evaluation team suggests that, as part of the proposed review, UNDP discuss procedures to improve, inter alia, (i) the validation of monitoring and evaluation frameworks, including baselines, at project inception; (ii) the periodic monitoring and reporting of the contribution of co-financing resources, including the recording of appropriate evidence; and (iii) the preparation and communication of high-quality quarterly and annual progress reports that effectively support project management and oversight.

Management Response: [Added: 2021/09/23]
