External Evaluation of the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP)

The Energy Sector Management Assistance Program of the World Bank (ESMAP) supports low- and middle-income countries in the development of sustainable energy policies and investments. ESMAP guides World Bank energy operations to deliver on SDG7 and the objectives of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.

The objective of this external evaluation is to draw lessons from the operational processes and implementation of ESMAP’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2017-20 Business Plan, including the achievement of the intended results and the efficiency of operational processes. The conclusions and recommendations of the evaluation will be used for reflection, learning, and strategic adaptation of the program for the next business plan.
