Next generation low carbon, climate resilient Eco-Village Development in South Asia

The initiative known as the "Next Generation Low Carbon, Climate Resilient Eco-Village Development in South Asia" (EVD IV) was executed through a collaborative effort involving various entities, including the Dansk International Bosætningsservice (DIB), the International Network for Sustainable Energy (INFORSE), and the Climate Action Network South Asia (CANSA). Operating in Bangladesh, India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka, the project expanded its influence via regional and global advocacy efforts, notably during the Conferences of the Parties (COPs) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The project promoted the Eco-Village Development (EVD) concept, emphasising community-driven, village-based approaches for low-carbon and climate-resilient development. PEMconsult carried out an evaluation of EVD IV. The evaluation included a field mission, visiting the model ecovillages in India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. Additionally, remote interviews were carried out with project partners in Bangladesh, India, and Denmark. In the final part of the evaluation, findings were presented in an online workshop with the project partners, and an evaluation report was elaborated.
