Terminal Evaluation of the UNEP/GEF project Addressing Transboundary Concerns in the Volta River Basin and its Downstream Coastal Area

The Global Environment Facility (GEF) project “Addressing Transboundary Concerns in the Volta River Basin and its Downstream Coastal Area” was designed to strengthen the ability of the Volta River Basin (VRB) countries to sustainably plan and manage the basin and its downstream coastal area. Participating countries were Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Mali, and Togo. The overall objective of the project was “to enhance the ability of the riparian countries to plan and manage the Volta River Basin and its downstream coastal area (including aquatic resources and ecosystems) on a sustainable basis”. The project was implemented from January 2008 to December 2013. The key questions for this evaluation focused on whether the project achieved its three specific objectives and the factors affecting its performance.
