Mid Term Evaluation

Project Independent Mid Term Evaluation (MTE):
Final Report, 31 March 2003. IMO London
The Independent Mid Term Evaluation (MTE) of the GloBallast Project was undertaken
to enable the direct stakeholders to the project (National Participating Countries,
Enabling Agencies, Implementing Agencies and GEF) to review progress and to
reappraise the objectives and likely outputs from the project.
The evaluation attempts to determine, as systematically and objectively as
possible, the relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, impact and sustainability
of the project. The evaluation assesses the achievements of the project against
its objectives, including a re-examination of the relevance of the objectives
and of the project design. It identifies factors that have facilitated or impeded
achievement of the objectives. The in-depth evaluation provides detailed recommendations
and lessons learned for the future.
