Evaluations in FAO assess activities, projects, programmes, strategies and policies and provide evidence-based information that is credible, reliable and useful for timely incorporation into decision-making processes. The following are brief descriptions of evaluations conducted recently of different programmes and projects of FAO:

Final Evaluation of the Joint Resilience Project in Kassala

17 October 2018
Weather-related shocks in Kassala, Sudan, regularly affect the resilience of communities and their food security conditions. The Joint Resilience Project (JPR), designed to prevent malnutrition in order to build resilience to droughts and floods, opted to measure stunting to determine whether improved maternal and child health and nutrition, as well as enhanced adaptive capacity were achieved. The initial focus on reducing malnutrition rather than building resilience reduced overall effectiveness, although the evaluation noted this shortcoming was corrected at mid-term. The [...]

Joint FAO-OIE Evaluation of the Global Framework for Transboundary Animal Diseases (GF-TADs)

17 October 2018
The Global Framework for the Control of Transboundary Animal Diseases (GF-TADs) is a joint governance mechanism of FAO and the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) launched in 2004 to achieve coordinated prevention and control of transboundary animal diseases (TADs), and in particular to address their regional and global dimensions. This is the third evaluation of the GF-TADs and covers the period from 2009 to 2017. The evaluation aims to provide the GF-TADs Global Steering Committee and Management Committee with [...]

Evaluation of FAO’s Contribution to Bhutan

26 September 2018
Bhutan is a lower middle-income country whose economy is aid-dependent, import-driven and vulnerable to shocks. The heavy reliance on export of hydroelectricity does not create broad-based employment. Bhutan’s narrow economic base and importance of the Renewable Natural Resources (RNR) put FAO in a unique position of contributing to the country’s development through strengthening its key economic sector. This evaluation assessed FAO’s contributions towards achieving the national development goals set out in Bhutan’s 11th Five Year Plan, which aims for “Self-reliance [...]

Evaluation of the Africa Solidarity Trust Fund

26 September 2018
The Africa Solidarity Trust Fund (ASTF) is a funding vehicle for the pursuit of joint and coordinated action to defeat hunger and malnutrition, improve the livelihood of farmers, and guarantee food and nutrition security for all Africans. An evaluation of the initiative from 2012-2017 shows that ASTF is highly relevant and an important funding mechanism to support African countries in pursuing their set priorities and objectives, in accordance with the commitment of the Malabo Declaration to end hunger in Africa [...]

Mid-Term Evaluation of the project “Conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, forests, soil and water to achieve Good Living/Sumac Kawsay in the Napo Province (FSP)” GCP/ECU/082/GFF GEF ID: 4774

24 August 2018
Ecuador has been recognized as one of the 17 megadiverse countries in the world. The Napo province presents 19 of the 91 ecosystems reported for Ecuador. With an integrated approach, the GEF-funded project “Conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, forests, soil and water to achieve good living (Sumac Kawsay)” sought to overcome the many threats affecting biodiversity while reducing rural poverty. The project is contributing to the adoption of good management practices of forests, water, soil, crops and livestock by [...]

Mid-term Evaluation of the Project “Sustainable Land Management and Climate-Friendly Agriculture”

10 August 2018
The “Sustainable Land Management and Climate-Friendly Agriculture” Project was implemented in Turkey to improve the sustainability of agricultural and forest land use in the area by rehabilitating degraded forests and rangelands, promoting climate-smart agriculture and establishing a favourable enabling environment. The project was designed to develop the necessary strategies, plans, tools and mechanisms that will aid stakeholders in sustainably managing forest and land resources. The Mid-term Evaluation highlighted that the Project is responding to national and provincial environmental needs and [...]

Final Evaluation of the Conservation Agriculture Scaling-Up (CASU) Project Funded by the European Union

06 August 2018
Despite widespread promotion of conservation agriculture in Zambia as a means to increase productivity and conserve soil fertility in farming systems, there has been limited adoption by farmers of such techniques. In an effort to address this, the Conservation Agriculture Scaling-Up (CASU) Project, funded by the European Union, had the objective of sustainably increasing crop productivity and diversity through widespread promotion of the three principles of conservation agriculture across the entire country, targeting over 300 000 smallholder farmers. The evaluation [...]

Evaluation of FAO’s Contribution to the Republic of Kenya

The purpose of FAO’s Country Programme Evaluation (CPE) in Kenya was to provide feedback to better orient the Organization’s programme with a view to making future Country Programming Frameworks (CPF) more impactful and relevant to the needs of the country. The Kenya CPE covers the period 2013-2016 and examined the five outcome areas found in the CPF. It also addressed the cross-cutting issues of gender, nutrition and HIV.The evaluation covered the entirety of FAO's cooperation with Kenya during the period, [...]

Evaluation of FAO’s Contribution to the Arab Republic of Egypt 2012-2017

22 June 2018
Egypt experienced instable political situation during the past years. As a result, its food security was heavily affected. FAO’s programme focused on sustainable agricultural development for food security and nutrition. Enhancing food security also requires addressing socio-economic aspects, particularly the role of women. With FAO support, the Law Governing Agricultural Cooperatives was reformed to revive its function, reducing the control of the government and collaborating with the private sector. This was critical for extending effective support to small farmers. Animal [...]
