Evaluation report on Removal of technical and economic barriers to initiating the clean-up activities for contaminated sites at OHIS.pdf


This report presents an independent terminal evaluation of the North Macedonian project “Removal of Technical and Economic Barriers to Initiating the Clean-up Activities for a-HCH, ß-HCH and Lindane Contaminated Sites at OHIS”. OHIS is a former organic chemicals factory at the outskirts of Skopje, North Macedonia. The project objective is to set up a sustainable mechanism to ensure a durable and continued clean-up operation at the selected HCH-contaminated site for future industrial use, and to protect human health and the environment from their adverse effects by reducing and eliminating the releases of and exposure to HCHs (6,000 m3 or 10,700 tons to be disposed within the project period). The purpose of the evaluation was to independently assess the project to help UNIDO improve performance and results of ongoing and future programmes and projects. The terminal evaluation covers the whole duration of the project from its starting date in January 2015 to the estimated completion date in March 2023.
