This is a terminal evaluation of a UNEP GEF project implemented between 2005 and 2008. The ultimate goal of the project "Assessment of Risk Management Instruments for Financing Renewable Energy" was to bring about a faster and more systematic deployment of RET by supporting the development of markets for RET projects' risk management instruments. The project aimed to provide the GEF and other donors with a better understanding of how they might work with private sector and public risk management actors to address some of the barriers hindering RTE deployment in developing countries through risk management instruments. The terminal evaluation has two primary purposes: to provide evidence of results to meet accountability requirements; and to promote learning, feedback and knowledge sharing among UNEP, the GEF and their partners by identifying lessons of operational relevance for future project formulation and implementation.
