Review of the implementation of commitments and of other provisions of the Convention. Report of the Global Environment Facility to the conference. Addendum. Review by the GEF of its climate change enabling activities. Note by the secretariat.
The Conference of the Parties (COP), by its decision 12/CP.2, adopted and thereby brought into force a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the COP and the Council of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) (FCCC/CP/1995/7/Add.1). The MOU provides, inter alia, that the annual report of the GEF be made available to the COP through the secretariat. The MOU further provides, that, in accordance with Article 11.1 of the Convention, the COP will,
after each of its sessions, communicate to the GEF any policy guidance approved concerning the financial mechanism.
In its reports to the COP at its fourth and fifth sessions, the GEF indicated that, in 1999, its monitoring and evaluation programme would undertake an evaluation of enabling activities in the climate change area. It further indicated that a proposed methodology for this evaluation would comprise a review of all relevant documentation, the views of the Parties as indicated in decision 12/CP.4, consultation with all GEF entities and the UNFCCC secretariat, as well as studies in a sample of non-Annex I countries and that the final evaluation report would be submitted to the COP. In response to the provision of the MOU, the GEF secretariat has submitted the attached report (Annex 1 and Annex 2), which is reproduced without formal editing
