About the event:

We are pleased to invite you to the online NAMA Facility learning event that will share lessons and insights into the evaluation and learning approach of the NAMA Facility. After a successful first learning event held in January 2022, the Technical Support Unit (TSU) is thrilled to continue the debate on the interplay between evaluation, learning, and climate action. Independent evaluators and representatives of NAMA Support Projects will be invited to share their experiences and inspire exchange on the following topics:

  • What signs of transformational change can we observe at the mid-term of the climate finance projects?
  • What key lessons and challenges are associated with mid-term evaluations from a project perspective?
  • How can projects incorporate the findings of mid-term evaluations?

The event will invite the participants to contribute to the discussion and share their insights during an interactive discussion session.
