Evaluation of FAO’s contribution in the Kyrgyz Republic

09/01/2017

This evaluation assessed FAO’s contribution in the Kyrgyz Republic through each of the priority areas of work under the Country Programming Framework 2015–2017: food security and nutrition, sustainable management of natural resources, climate change and rural poverty reduction. It found that the Country Programming Framework was a comprehensive programme that largely addressed relevant development goals and key development issues of the country. The initiatives have enjoyed high levels of ownership and appreciation from government counterparts and donors. Among these are the programmes to support food security and nutrition and strengthen agriculture, fisheries, forestry and livestock sectors. The evaluation however notes that some small projects and sectoral policy interventions were less successful, especially those driven by regional and global initiatives that were less context-specific and/or had complex implementation strategies. It recommends that FAO should enhance its already strong positioning in the national development arena by better addressing higher-level objectives such as contributing to equitable and inclusive rural poverty reduction and the competitiveness of the agro-food sector. Building on the success of its policy, capacity development and field interventions, FAO should focus its cooperation on ‘scalable’ programmes which by design include a “value chain” approach and adequate consideration of gender equity and monitoring and evaluation issues.
