    governance of the forest areas Better governance has been achieved by mapping the land and the activities that take place in the forests and by identifying who owns them Civil society has played a significant role in the work on anti corruption measures illegal tree felling and the rights of indigenous people says Ms Hellmark Gender equality was included in the planning documents but the evaluation is critical of the fact that women s rights are still not assigned priority in the implementation of the projects Poor planning and reporting The report reveals that the positive results have been achieved in spite of the fact that there is no overall result framework or coordinated strategy for how the goals are to be met This was also pointed out in previous evaluations and was one of the main criticisms of the report from the Office of the Auditor General in 2013 When NICFI was set up it all happened quickly and as a political initiative The evaluation shows that both the pre initiative planning and the reporting during the implementation were inadequate Ms Hellmark tells us The outcome of the initiative has clearly been positive but much has been due to wide political support large disbursements great flexibility and competent employees She continues Several of the individual projects that are included in the initiative are well planned and reported but the lack of a coordinated strategy prevents joint prioritizations within an initiative that has many different actors Ineffectiveness poor information and coordination problems Norway has given financial support to both the UN and the World Bank to enable these organizations to support the countries work of reducing deforestation Information and the reporting of results are as inadequate in these organizations as they are in the Norwegian initiative Moreover the evaluation team concludes that the multilateral organizations are ineffective and badly coordinated Coordination problems arise because there are so many actors involved and because the activities that are to be performed are so diverse Ms Hellmark explains The multilateral organizations are also increasing the number of countries they support even though many of the countries that have already received support show little progress The cause of the lack of progress should therefore be analysed before more new countries are included Lack of certainty over funding is a challenge One of the main motivating factors to encourage a country to commit itself to forest conservation and emission reductions is the pledge of disbursements for results achieved According to the evaluation report uncertainty about the future financing of such result based payments is the greatest risk for further progress In addition the evaluation points out that the costs of forest conservation should be viewed in relation to the countries potential for operating the necessary systems says Ms Hellmark The evaluation also states that result based funding which is the form of disbursement that has been selected is probably not viable in several of the countries Changes recommended According to the evaluation the next step
