This is a terminal evaluation of a UNEP GEF project implemented between 2003 and 2007. The project's overall objective was to assess the capacity of peatlands, to act as significant carbon stores and provide recommendations on how these areas could be managed to ensure this attribute is maintained. It will also help determine what management measures can help reduce the net emissions of GHGs from peatlands. This terminal evaluation sought to assess the actual performance and results of the Integrated Peatlands Management project against the planned project activities, outputs, outcomes and objectives based on the relevant evaluation criteria, as well as any unanticipated results.
