Such evaluation work is part of the overall exploration of the results achieved by the GEF and has a strong focus on learning lessons from experience. Impact evaluations undertaken yearly are synthesized into the Annual Impact Report (AIR)and are presented to the GEF Council.

Country Portfolio Evaluations analyze the totality of GEF support across GEF Agencies, projects, and programs in a given country, with the aim of reviewing the performance and results of GEF-supported activities and assessing how those activities align with country strategies and priorities as well as with GEF's priorities for global environmental benefits.
