Ecometrica-led NICFI Results Published

May 3, 2011

“Norway’s International Climate and Forests Initiative (NICFI) has had a galvanising effect on efforts to build a global regime to reduce emissions from deforestation and degradation”.

This is just one of the conclusions of a detailed evaluation of NICFI carried out by Ecometrica, LTS International, Indufor Oy and the Christian Michelsen Instititue. Dr Richard Tipper led the evaluation of NICFI’s impacts on global policy developments, which was one of six reports commissioned by Norad. This work represents the largest evaluation ever commissioned by Norad and is a key example of climate policy evaluation in practice.
