This report is a mid-term evaluation of a UNEP GEF project implemented between 2007 and 2012. The projects objectives were to provide financial and technical assistance that facilitates the switch from grid-based electricity as main power source to Mini Hydro as locally available alternative; and facilitate access to electrical power for communities adjacent to tea factories and/or Mini Hydro Plants. The purpose of the MTE was to assess the progress of project implementation and to make necessary recommendations on the emphasis of the project in the remaining period of one and a half years. It is also used to capture the lessons learned and the experience gained for sharing and application in similar future settings while at the same time recommending detailed sustainability plans for project achievements and activities.
