Ecosystem-Based Adaption Project PABE – Benin Consolidated Baseline Study

Export citation

The objective of PABE project is to buffer communities against the effects of climate change by adapting agricultural livelihoods and investing in land stewardship. The project implements key EbA and climate-resilient agricultural interventions in the following seven municipalities of central and north Benin: Dassa, Tchaourou, Djougou, Ouaké, Cobly, Boukoumbé and Banikoara. As part of the overall Monitoring and Evaluation Framework of PABE, this report presents the consolidated baseline study conducted in Benin from September to December 2022 using the multi-year Learning-Oriented Real-Time Impact Assessment (LORTA) approach. the Independent Evaluation Unit (IEU) of the GCF started LORTA programme with the main goal of strengthening the capacities in assessing the impact of GCF intervention. The LORTA uses impact evaluation (IE) techniques to help understanding which activities are working, which are most efficient, and which approaches to scale up. Empirical evidence on impacts of climate-related projects is rather scarce.
