Mid-term evaluation of “Participatory assessment of land degradation and sustainable land management in grassland and pastoral systems”

27 July 2020
Grasslands and rangelands make an important contribution to the maintenance of an ecosystem’s function and biodiversity. Degradation is one of the main problems faced by these resources globally. In 2017, FAO began implementing the project in pastoral areas of Burkina Faso, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Niger, and Uruguay with the aim to strengthen the capacity of local and national stakeholders in assessing land degradation and promoting sustainable land management. The “Participatory Assessment of Land Degradation and Sustainable Land Management in Grassland and [...]

Evaluation of FAO’s contribution to the Smallholder Commercialisation Programme and to the Global Agriculture and Food Security Programme in Sierra Leone

08 July 2020
The Smallholder Commercialization Program in Sierra Leone aims to empower rural communities to increase their food security and income on a sustainable basis. The evaluation covered FAO’s contribution to the program between 2012 and 2018. FAO’s contribution focused on intensifying production through the implementation of farmer field schools (FFSs), improving commercialisation by supporting agricultural business centres (ABCs) and enhancing technical capacity of district agricultural offices and the Programme Management Unit at central level. Knowledge was succesfully transfered to farmers and national [...]

Evaluation of FAO’s country programme in Lebanon 2016-2019

02 July 2020
Lebanon is an upper-middle income country with a population of 4.5 million people. The agriculture sector in Lebanon is an important contributor to the livelihood of poor and vulnerable populations, including 1.5 million Syrian refugees hosted in the country. FAO prudently integrated the donor priority and the government priority by designing the resilience programme to support host communities, with emphasis on vulnerable farmers. FAO’s resilience programmes addressed both emergency and longer term development needs through interventions directly supporting small-scale farmers [...]

Evaluation of the project “Capacity Development for Agricultural Innovation Systems (CDAIS)”

30 June 2020
“Capacity development for agricultural innovation systems”, implemented by FAO and Agrinatura from 2015 to 2019, supported the Tropical Agriculture Platform (TAP) to improve the global coherence of capacity development for agricultural innovation. The project contributed to developing a common framework for a practical approach to capacity development for agricultural innovation, and piloted its application across eight countries. The approach is based on soft skills and the importance of process, as opposed to the mainstream paradigm based on developing technology and [...]

Evaluación final del proyecto “Promoción del manejo sostenible de la tierra”

24 June 2020
La evaluación final del proyecto Promoción del Manejo Sostenible de la Tierra muestra el carácter innovador e integrador del Modelo de Gestión Territorial propuesto para promover el Manejo Sostenible de las Tierras (MST) en zonas semiáridas de México. Sobresale la eficacia del modelo para hacer converger políticas multisectoriales y de los tres niveles de gobierno en un fin común, que es revertir la degradación de las tierras. La evaluación identifica aspectos técnicos que deberían fortalecerse, ubicándolos en el mismo nivel de [...]

Evaluación final de “Conservación y uso sostenible de la biodiversidad, los bosques, el suelo y el agua como medio para lograr el buen vivir/Sumac Kawsay en la provincia de Napo (FSP)”

24 June 2020
El proyecto tuvo como objetivos promover la conservación y uso sostenible de la biodiversidad, revertir la degradación de tierras y la deforestación y contextualmente aumentar y mejorar el suministro de bienes y servicios procedentes de la agricultura, la ganadería, y la actividad forestal en la provincia de Napo. El proyecto ha contribuido significativamente a estos objetivos, logrando: un apoyo adecuado a diferentes actividades productivas y de conservación; un impacto inicial sobre la conservación de los bosques y los suelos y [...]

Evaluation of FAO's statistical work

10 June 2020
The evaluation of FAO’s statistical work examines the relevance and the effectiveness of statistics in the era of “leave no one behind”. It appraises the progress made by FAO and the challenges faced in establishing functional statistical governance, providing quality statistics, and adopting sustainable capacity development at the global, regional and country level. The evaluation found that statistics remain core to FAO’s overall work. Members demand for data to support SDG indicator implementation and the use of statistics in policy-making has [...]

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 [...]
