Ongoing evaluations

Since 1968, when the FAO evaluation service was established, the Organization has consistently supported systematic evaluation of its programmes and projects, irrespective of their funding sources. Hence, evaluation has become a regular and integral element in FAO’s results-based management (RBM) system. The following are brief descriptions of evaluations that are currently being conducted by the FAO Office of Evaluation:

Thematic

Evaluation of FAO's contributions to the Republic of Uganda

Evaluation of FAO's contributions to the Republic of Uganda

This evaluation assesses the totality of FAO’s cooperation with the Republic of Uganda through the Country Programming Framework (CPF) 2015-2019, including the relevance of its programmes in relation to national needs and challenges, contributions made by FAO to national priorities in the areas of rural and agricultural development and capacity building, and the strategic position of FAO in the country in terms of its comparative advantages, partnerships, and synergies with other development actors. The evaluation is deemed particularly timely given the current efforts of the Country Office to better strategize its response to the refugee crisis. It will be finalised in 2019.

Evaluation of FAO's contributions to Ethiopia

Evaluation of FAO's contributions to Ethiopia

An evaluation of FAO’s country programme in Ethiopia will take place in 2019, as a way to take stock of the results achieved so far, strengthen the relevance and effectiveness of FAO’s interventions in the country, and contribute to the formulation of the next country programming framework for Ethiopia. The evaluation will cover the totality of FAO’s cooperation with Government of Ethiopia over the period 2014-2019. This will be the second Country Programme Evaluation conducted by the FAO Evaluation Office in Ethiopia. The evaluation will be finalised during the second half of 2019.

Projects

Evaluation of the FAO-WFP joint project to strengthen the resilience of vulnerable populations in Northern Mali

Evaluation of the FAO-WFP joint project to strengthen the resilience of vulnerable populations in Northern Mali

Although FAO and WFP have worked together in other interventions in Mali, these have never been jointly assessed. This evaluation will analyse whether the recent intervention, which was carried out using existing synergies and complementarities between the two agencies, is providing better results compared to individual interventions. The relevance of the project to the context and needs of the target populations of Tombouctou, Gao and Mopti will be analysed, as well as the results that have been achieved towards improving the food security, nutrition and resilience of the target populations, including whether these are sustainable over time. The lessons learnt from this collaboration could be a useful contribution to the two agencies in the development of other joint programs and projects as well as improving collaboration between FAO and WFP more generally. The report will be finalised by summer 2018.

Evaluation of the FAO’s contribution to building resilience to El Niño-induced drought in Southern Africa

Evaluation of the FAO’s contribution to building resilience to El Niño-induced drought in Southern Africa

During the 2015/16 agricultural season, Southern Africa experienced an intense drought driven by one of the strongest El Niño events of the last 50 years. With 70 percent of the population relying on agriculture for their livelihoods, the El Niño had a direct impact on food security and caused loss of income from crop and livestock value chains, as well as loss of income-generating opportunities for vulnerable people that provide labor for the sector. FAO activated a corporate surge response for Southern Africa (L3 Emergency Corporate Response) from July 2016 to February 2017. This evaluation will expand beyond the response to focus on FAO’s approach and response to recurrent natural disasters in Southern Africa, and the inter-face between the short-term and long-term activities (humanitarian-development nexus). The evaluation will also investigate complementarities and gaps that will improve FAO’s long-term support to building resilience to El Niño-induced drought and other climate related events bearing an impact on agriculture and food security. The evaluation will cover the period October 2015 to December 2017, and will be finalised in June 2019.
