Real-Time Evaluation of Norway’s International Climate and Forest Initiative: Lessons Learned from Support to Civil Society Organisations
This Evaluation of Norway’s International Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI) Civil Society Support Scheme was conducted in two phases. The first deskbased phase reviewed project documentation from the 2009 and 2010 calls for proposals held by Norad and was reported on in September 2011. The second
phase involved field visits to Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Indonesia and Peru together with a visit to Washington DC to interview United States-based grant holders together with visits to grant holders based in United Kingdom and Norway. In addition to the main study, subsidiary studies were undertaken on portfolio management, on mapping supported actors in Indonesia, on research projects and on the political background to the scheme.
