LoGIC is a multi-donor collaborative initiative supported by the Government of Bangladesh, UNDP, UNCDF, the EU and the Embassy of Sweden. It aimed to enhance the capacity of local governments and communities to engage in effective and inclusive local level planning and financing climate adaptive solutions to reduce poverty and climate-induced vulnerabilities through gender-sensitive approaches.
Applying a theory-based evaluation approach with mixed methods, we evaluated LoGIC against the OECD-DAC evaluation criteria. The evaluation recommendations were used for course correction to better support 72 local government institutions in creating climate-resilient infrastructure and around 35,000 climate-distressed women, their households, and communities through climate adaptive livelihoods in climate-vulnerable Upazilas across seven districts. The evaluation has also provided learnings for scaling up the initiative going forward.
