An analysis of valuation initiatives that have successfully informed decisions pertaining to UNDP-GEF valuations, suggests some common features. These include economic analysis based on solid science and focused on a clear policy question, careful identification and engagement with decision-makers, broad participation by local stakeholders, and effective  communication and collaboration. Building on these lessons, the guidance contained herein allows UNDP-GEF, other UNDP Country Offices, and partners to more systematically undertake higher impact valuation initiatives through better technical design and management of the process.
