The African Biomes Strategic Country Cluster Evaluation (SCCE) covers GEF activities in 23 countries situated in two Sub-Saharan African biomes: the Sahel and the Sudan-Guinea Savanna. Selection of these two biomes is based on the countries' comparable land-based environmental challenges.
The strategic country cluster evaluation (SCCE) of least developed countries (LDCs) covers all 47 LDCs, located in Africa, Asia, and Latin America and the Caribbean.
The strategic country cluster evaluation (SCCE) of small island developing states (SIDS) covers 39 SIDS in the AIMS (Atlantic, Indian Ocean, Mediterranean and South China Sea), Caribbean, and Pacific regions.

The GEF in the Changing Environmental Finance Landscape
This study provides insights on the Global Environment Facility (GEF) adaptation portfolio for the GEF-7 replenishment cycle. It assesses the Least Developed Country Fund's (LDCF's) efficacy and results for successes and shortcomings in a thorough portfolio evaluation.
Country portfolio evaluations (CPEs) conducted by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Independent Evaluation Office (GEF-IEO) use the country as the unit of analysis to examine the totality of GEF support across all GEF Agencies and programs.
The GEF Independent Evaluation Office is undertaking an evaluation of the totality of GEF support across all GEF Implementing Agencies and programs in Morocco between 1997 and 2013.
