Value for Money Analysis of GEF Interventions in Support of Sustainable Forest Management


This study is the first Value for Money analysis to assess the impact and global environmental benefits (GEBs) of GEF investments and technical support through sustainable forest management (SFM) interventions. This study had three objectives. The first was to estimate the portfolio-scale impact of GEF interventions in SFM on land cover and associated above-ground carbon storage. The second objective was to use the calculated impacts on land cover to estimate the monetary value of tons of carbon sequestered. The third objective was to examine the socio-economic effects using a portfolio-wide approach (based on the night light activity), and to focus on a single-country case study, Uganda, by leveraging in-country household survey information.
