Evaluation of FAO’s Contribution to the Conservation and Sustainable use of Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture

26/05/2016

This evaluation assessed FAO’s work related to forest, plant, animal and aquatic genetic resources during the period 2007-2015. It identified achievements and analysed factors that have affected performance. It concluded that FAO is a respected authority on genetic resources for food and agriculture, its Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture provides the only global forum for governments to discuss and negotiate matters specifically relevant to biological diversity and genetic resources for food and agriculture, and that its global work is extremely relevant. It however posed questions on how the work at the country level is organized and how effective they were in that context. It recommends that FAO should maintain its core expertise in providing key normative products and activities at the global level, given their high relevance and proven usefulness. FAO should also consider new ways of integrating genetic resources work within FAO and make renewed efforts to confirm FAO’s presence as a global authority on genetic resources for food and agriculture. On the other hand, FAO should refrain from one-off technical assistance provided mainly from headquarters. Instead, support should be integrated into country programmes to ensure long-term engagement for capacity development.
