Participatory Monitoring & Evaluation in the Green Climate Fund – And How Civil Society Can Engage

The Green Climate Fund (GCF) requires that financed programmes, projects and activities are regularly monitored for impact, efficiency and effectiveness in line with rules and procedures established by the Board. The Fund encourages the use of participatory monitoring involving targeted stakeholders and calls on Accredited Entities (AEs) to include at the project/programme level participatory monitoring approaches.

This briefing paper outlines how the GCF can  involve communities and local stakeholders, including civil society organizations (CSOs), at all stages of the project/programme cycle in a participatory monitoring and evaluation approach.
