The purpose of the Technology Needs Assessment Project (Phase I), supported by the Global Environment Fund (GEF), was to assist participating “developing country parties to identify and analyse priority technology needs, which can form the basis for a portfolio of environmentally sound technology (EST) projects and programmes to facilitate the transfer of, and access to, the technologies and related know-how”. This is an obligation under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The project provide support to 36 countries. This terminal evaluation was undertaken primarily during the fourth quarter of 2015. It focused on the two principal purposes specified by UNEP - meeting accountability requirements; and the promotion of learning and knowledge sharing and lessons within UNEP and among partners.
