Mid-Term evaluation of the of the Global Energy Transformation Programme (GET.pro)
Founded by the European Union (EU) and the member states Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands, and Austria in 2018, the Global Energy Transformation Programme (GET.pro) is a multi-donor platform bundling European forces to jointly deliver on international energy and climate goals. In a nutshell, GET.pro carries out catalytic and targeted actions in order to establish the necessary conditions for achieving the Paris Climate Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular on energy (Overall Objective). The tailored instruments of GET.pro enable focused and scalable interventions that target private sector as well as public sector actors.
The specific purpose of the evaluation was to assess the Get.Pro’s work on the basis of provided services under the contract period from 01/04/2018 to 31/12/2021. The evaluation assessed this intervention using the six standard DAC evaluation criteria, namely: relevance, coherence, efficiency, effectiveness, sustainability and impact. In addition, the evaluation assessed the intervention through an EU specific evaluation criterion, which is the EU added value.
The main objectives of this evaluation were to provide the relevant services of the European Union, the interested stakeholders and other audience with:
An overall independent assessment of the past performance of get.pro, paying particular attention to its results measured against its expected objectives; and the reasons underpinning such results;
Key lessons learned, conclusions and related recommendations in order to improve the implementation during the second part of the contract.
In particular, this evaluation served the EU services to understand the performance of Get.Pro, its enabling factors and those hampering a proper delivery of results. It was particularly relevant to evaluate what worked well and what did not work so well, in order to improve the continuation of the implementation and the design of possible future interventions.
