ESMAP Portfolio Review and External Evaluation
Starting in 2011, ESMAP implemented a new Monitoring and Evaluation system that assesses the impact of its analytical and technical advisory work on World Bank Group (WBG) lending operations, as well as on government policies, country capacities, and interventions by the wider development community. The results are published yearly in an ESMAP Portfolio Review.
The current report, the ESMAP Portfolio Review 2012, takes stock of the results and outcomes of ESMAP projects and activities approved and implemented since fiscal year 2009 (July 2008) under four major themes, namely: Energy Assessments and Strategy Program; Energy Access; Energy Efficiency; and Clean Energy.
The first report, the ESMAP Portfolio Review 2011, takes stock of the results and outcomes of activities implemented during the FY2009-FY2011 period under five themes (or portfolios): Energy Assessments and Strategy Program, Energy Access, Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy, and Low Carbon Growth.
ESMAP External Evaluation
This evaluation, published in June 2012, covers fiscal years 2007 through 2011. The primary objectives of the evaluation were to: (i) assess the effectiveness of ESMAP as a global technical assistance program; (ii) assess the major factors that have influenced results either positively or negatively; (iii) draw key lessons learned; and (iv) recommend how better to meet the objectives of the program. In addressing these objectives, the evaluation assessed what impact ESMAP has had in helping to achieve poverty reduction in client countries by enhancing institutional capacity in the energy sector.
