Morocco Country Portfolio Evaluation


The GEF Independent Evaluation Office undertook an evaluation of the totality of GEF support across all GEF Implementing Agencies and programs in Morocco between 1997 and 2013. This Country Portfolio Evaluation (CPE) assessed the relevance, results, effectiveness, sustainability and efficiency of GEF projects at the country level. Since 1997, the GEF has allocated over US$ 108 million through 29 approved national projects. Morocco is also a participant in 23 regional and 16 global projects supported by the GEF. These projects fall under five areas: biodiversity, climate change, international waters, persistent organic pollutants, and multi-focal area. The support has so far been implemented by seven GEF agencies, with 8 national projects completed. The evaluation found that the GEF contributed to the enabling environment for solar energy, conservation of protected areas, prevention of deforestation, and elimination of dangerous chemicals. However, gender issues were not systematically taken into account in the country portfolio.
