Terminal evaluation of the project “Reducing vulnerability and increasing adaptive capacity to respond to impacts of climate change and variability for sustainable livelihoods in agriculture sector in Nepal”

30 April 2020
Nepal's agriculture sector faces many climate related hazards including floods, draught, pests and diseases, deforestation and desertification. Improved farming techniques based on resilience to climate change and extreme weather patterns are required to be integrated into agriculture sectorial policies, plans, programmes and local actions. Between October 2015 and September 2019, FAO implemented a project to support Nepal’s agriculture sector by promoting urgent and immediate adaptation measures outlined in the National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA). The project has contributed to the [...]

Terminal evaluation of “Reducing greenhouse gas emissions by promoting community forestry, removing barriers to sustainable biomass energy, and laying the groundwork for climate change mitigation in Afghanistan”

30 April 2020
Afghanistan’s high diversity of rangeland and forest ecosystems provide valuable goods and services for local communities. Unsustainable land and resource management practices, as well as climate changes, are accelerating the degradation of these ecosystems and affecting local livelihoods. FAO recognizes community based natural resource management (CBNRM) and Sustainable Biomass Energy Systems (SBES) as potential tools to address these issues, and implemented the project in the Parwan and Nangarhar provinces between August 2016 and July 2019. The evaluation presents the results [...]

Evaluación de medio término del proyecto “Manejo integrado de espacios marinos y costeros de alto valor para la biodiversidad en el Ecuador continental”

30 April 2020
El área continental ecuatoriana se caracteriza por una alta diversidad de ecosistemas marinos y costeros, incluyendo playas de anidación de cuatro especies de tortugas marinas y extensas zonas de manglares que brindan bienes y servicios ecosistémicos. El proyecto, implementado por la FAO de 2016 a 2020, busca superar las principales amenazas que afectan a la diversidad biológica marina y costera y al mismo tiempo contribuir a mejorar los medios de vida de las personas que habitan en estas áreas. El [...]

Mid-term evaluation of “Disposal of obsolete pesticides including persistent organic pollutants and strengthening pesticide management in the Permanent Interstate Committee for Drought Control in the Sahel member states”

29 April 2020
At the regional level, in member states of the Permanent Interstate Committee for Drought Control in the Sahel (CILSS), pesticides continue to accumulate. The project aims to meet the challenge of eliminating existing obsolete pesticides, including POPs and related wastes, and to build capacity for the sound management of pesticides to prevent future build-up in nine CILSS countries. The aim of the evaluation was to measure the progress of the project at mid-term, in terms of results achieved with regard [...]

Final evaluation of “Strengthening institutionalized subnational coordination structures and harmonization mechanisms” in Ethiopia

21 April 2020
Recurrent droughts in Ethiopia have been contributing to chronic food insecurity, deterioration of livelihoods and weakening capacity of communities to withstand future shocks. Following the 2011 food crisis in the Horn of Africa, ‘building resilience’ became a priority agenda for the international community to move from the division of emergency and development programming to a more holistic and complementary approach for addressing the root cause of disaster risk and vulnerability factors of recurrent drought. The project, implemented by FAO between [...]

Evaluation of "Improving farmer livelihoods in the dry zone through improved livestock health, productivity and marketing"

21 April 2020
“Improving farmer livelihoods in the dry zone through improved livestock health, productivity and marketing” was implemented in six townships in the Central Dry Zone (CDZ) of Myanmar, between January 2016 and December 2019. The project aim was to sustainably improve the livelihoods and food security of communities and the poor and vulnerable though improving livestock health, productivity, and marketing.

Final evaluation of "Pursuing pastoralist resilience through improved animal health service delivery in pastoralist areas of Ethiopia"

08 April 2020
Small ruminants are the main source of livelihood for rural agropastoralists in Ethiopia. Transboundary animal diseases (TADs) are a significant cause of reduced production and productivity. TADs like Peste des Petits Ruminants (PPR), Sheep and Goat Pox (SGP) and Contagious Caprine Pleuropneumonia (CCPP) have contributed to a high level of sheep and goat mortality, especially in lambs and kids. The project, implemented by FAO between 2014 and 2020, was designed to support the strengthening of the surveillance system for most [...]
