The Facility also assists in the steering, management, delivery, and M&E of on-going green economy actions.

Tools for programme design or monitoring

The SWITCH to Green Facility works with EU Delegations and to DEVCO HQs
Units to better program, design, deliver and monitor/evaluate actions contributing
to the circular – and more broadly the green – economy transition in EU partner countries. Experts support EU actions through on-demand provision of short-term expertise – including with direct support offered to EU partners at country level – and through regular reviews of action or other related documents. Missions can also inform policy processes to facilitate policy dialogue and development at country level.

Developed instruments

The SWITCH to Green Facility supported DEVCO to develop a results chain and indicator guidance for EU international cooperation on the green economy. The publication offers a handy tool to elaborate solid logical framework matrices for green economy related activities. It identifies clear and  measurable results statements that are in line with DEVCO policy priorities, as well as with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), together with a range of well-established and practical indicators to monitor progress.

Global database of SWITCH project results

The so-called Impact App serves dual purpose: The information encoded in th database by the Grant projects feeds into a unified database used for monitoring as well as for communication and visibility. Based on this information, the production of annual publications with information on the impact of the SWITCH Grant projects is envisaged.
