It is a joint initiative of the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) and the Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN). The main goal of this external evaluation is to test the participating organization’s perception of the Platform against the views and experiences of REPIC’s target groups. The evaluation was implemented in collaboration with JaLogisch Consulting consisted of a web-based survey of the Swiss organizations and their local partners which requested project-financing during the current fourth phase of REPIC, as well as the (partly overlapping group) of participants in REPIC network events since 2013. The evaluation report served the programme steering committee to decide on a potential continuation of REPIC.
