This is a terminal evaluation of a UNEP project implemented between 2009 and 2014. The Tehran Convention aims at protecting the Caspian environment from all sources of pollution and also targets the preservation, restoration and protection of the marine environment of the Caspian Sea. The first meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP I) to the Tehran Convention in 2007 requested UNEP to carry out the functions of the Convention Secretariat ad interim to support the COP in the implementation of the Tehran Convention in organizational, administrative and technical matters, until a permanent Convention Secretariat is put in place. The Terminal Evaluation was undertaken to assess project performance (in terms of relevance, effectiveness and efficiency), and determine outcomes and impacts (actual and potential).
