European Capacity Building Initiative

Independent Evaluation of ecbi Phase III

Sida funded an independent evaluation of ecbi for its 2011-2013 activities and found that the ecbi has achieved its overall outcomes as outlined in the report. The ecbi was found to fulfil a need not met by other initiatives and become an established presence in the climate change negotiation field - set apart by its participatory, impartial, developing countryled approach, which is rooted in negotiation experience.
Respondents also communicated strongly that they believed the ecbi is enabling trust building between participating negotiators and enabled developing country negotiators to collaborate and develop joint positions which has impacted negotiation decisions. Lastly, examples were identified of how the ecbi initiative has led to a more level playing field for developing country negotiators and women negotiators.
