Mid-Term Evaluation. Low Carbon Development Strategy (LCDS) Amerindian Development Fund (ADF): Village Economy Development (Phase II) under the Guyana REDD+ Investment Fund (GRIF) (ADF Phase II Project)

January 6, 2019

The Amerindian Development Fund (ADF) has been established to provide support for the socioeconomic and environmental development of Amerindian communities and villages, through the implementation of Community Development Plans. The proposed projects cover agricultural production and processing, village infrastructure, tourism, manufacturing, village business enterprise, and transportation, among others. This project, implemented by the Ministry of Amerindian Affairs -now Ministry of Indigenous Peoples‘ Affairs (MoIPA )-, and supported by UNDP, is based on a transformational approach that aims to strengthen the entrepreneurial capacities and capabilities of Amerindian communities through the provision of micro-capital grants (provided by the GRIF-ADF) while engendering a supportive landscape for private enterprise development. This approach aims to facilitate the gradual integration of remote Amerindian communities and economies into the regional and national economy.
The specific objectives of the evaluation are: • Analyze the progress in terms of outcomes and outputs as well as their efficiency, effectiveness and impact; • Evaluate the contribution of the activities and tools towards the achievement of results; • Determine lessons learned for their sustainability and further impact on beneficiaries; and • Enhance the MoIPA and UNDP´s contribution to the project´s execution and sustainability.
