Main project features:

The report of the Independent Evaluation Unit on the “Adaptation Portfolio and Approach of the GCF” identified clearly the main gaps related to the lack of a clear methodology for estimating the “number of direct and indirect beneficiaries” of adaptation projects from the GCF portfolio: challenges for project comparison and aggregation, over-estimation of beneficiaries and no indication on the depth of the impact.
Against this backdrop, this project aimed at developing a robust methodology for future estimation of the total number of direct and indirect adaptation beneficiaries of GCF projects. The project team developed a framework that can be applied widely to estimate the number of beneficiaries and identified areas which require further work to achieve a comprehensive methodological approach. An indicator considering the depth of adaptation impact was created: the impact weighted number of beneficiaries. The methodology developed was applied ex-post to the adaptation and cross-cutting projects of the 119 projects approved by B29. Lessons learned from this ex-post estimation were used for strengthening the methodology.

Project Overview

Perspectives performed the following tasks:
– Inception: preparation of a kick-off meeting and inception report
– Methodology development: after conducting a desk-research, a definition of direct and indirect beneficiaries has been proposed and the general framework for estimating direct and indirect beneficiaries was determined. The proposed methodology was submitted to consultations with the GCF Secretariat and a selected Group of Accredited Entities.
– Piloting of the methodology: eight projects were selected to pilot the methodology and improve it if needed.
– Ex-post estimation of the number of direct and indirect beneficiaries for the 119 adaptation and cross-cutting projects of the existing (at B29) GCF portfolio.
– Preparation of a final report with recommendations on the next steps to take and presentation of the final results to the GCF Secretariat.
