Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E)
ESMAP’s monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system was developed to assess the effectiveness and impact of ESMAP’s activities— including analytical services, technical assistance, capacity-building and project development—in helping client countries to achieve energy security, address energy poverty, and mitigate and adapt to climate change.
This “upstream” support influences the development of national, sub-national and regional energy projects and programs that are often later supported by World Bank Group (WBG) financing. Much of the World Bank’s energy sector policy dialogue and many lending programs are enabled in part by ESMAP’s support.
The M&E system is thus designed to measure ESMAP’s effectiveness in supporting the WBG’s engagement with client countries and measuring the impact and influence of ESMAP activities on World Bank lending operations, government policies, and country capacities, as well as the development community’s interventions in the energy sector.
