The real-time evaluation of the Government of Norway’s International Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI)
Norad’s Evaluation Department started the real-time evaluation of the Government of Norway’s International Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI) in early 2010, entering into a framework contract with LTS International (covering 2010-2013). Several evaluations have been completed and this synthesis evaluation will be the final one to be conducted under the existing contract. The purpose of this evaluation is to determine the extent to which the anticipated outcomes were produced. It will synthesise the results and lessons learned and serve as input to NICFI and the broader REDD community in the future work. The main objective is to assess the results of NICFI’s support against its overall objectives, and shall cover the period from 2007-2013. The focus will be on achievements of results against the each of the objectives, and how the climate and development objectives are interlinked.

The evaluation is intended to provide insight into the effects of the TfP programme’s contribution to the training and deployment of peace operations personnel and to provide information on the programme’s progress towards its objective to build sustainable African capacity in peacekeeping and peacebuilding operations, including the role of research and policy development in this work.
