Final evaluation of Growing Forest Partnerships
The final evaluation of the Growing Forest Partnerships (GFP) was commissioned by the Catalytic Group (CG), administered by IIED and conducted during the first half of 2012 by Acacia Natural Resource Consultants Ltd. It covered the four-year period of GFP preparation and implementation from 2008 to 2012. The evaluation sought to:
Assess the partnership results created or fostered by the GFP
Assess the partnership processes through which these results were delivered
Distil lessons from the partnerships for the proposed Forest Partnership Facility (FPF)
Make recommendations on opportunities, constraints and recommendations for the FPF
The evaluation was based on literature review, consultations with implementing agencies and partner organisations, and visits to three GFP operating countries (Ghana, Guatemala and Liberia).
