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.

Evaluation of FAO’s Contribution to The Kingdom of Cambodia - Summary report

04 December 2018
Evaluation of FAO’s Contribution to Cambodia Although Cambodia is rapidly transitioning to a more industrialised economy, the country is still among the poorest in Southeast Asia, and the risk of sliding back into poverty remains high, especially for rural households. The goal of FAO’s programme in Cambodia has been to contribute to the eradication of poverty, food insecurity and malnutrition while promoting sustainable natural resource management. The 2018 country programme evaluation highlighted FAO’s comparative advantage – as a trusted purveyor [...]

Evaluation of FAO’s Contribution to Guinea

30 November 2018
In 2012 about 55 percent of Guinea’s population was living below the national poverty line. The 2014/15 Ebola crisis heavily hit the country disrupting the actions undertaken by FAO to strengthen the resilience of vulnerable populations to food security. Several unplanned projects have been implemented to respond to the country’s emergency. Achievements included: Ebola risk management capacity building at community level as well as livelihoods and livelihoods strengthening of vulnerable households in agriculture and livestock; setting up a wildlife monitoring [...]

Final Evaluation of the Project “Increased Household Food, Income and Nutrition Security through Commercialization of an Integrated and Sustainable Smallholder Livestock Sector in Zimbabwe”

26 November 2018
The Final Evaluation of the Project “Increased Household Food, Income and Nutrition Security through Commercialization of an Integrated and Sustainable Smallholder Livestock Sector in Zimbabwe” concluded that the Project’s objective of changing mindsets of smallholder livestock farmers to view livestock as important economic assets more than a social asset was very relevant and timely. The Projects’ implementation modality of having two co-applicants was strategic: it was able capitalize on the local knowledge and expertise of the co-applicants. However, this implementation [...]

Final Evaluation of the Project for Assistance to the Recovery and Development of the Agricultural Economy in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) of Pakistan

15 November 2018
The “Project for Assistance to the Recovery and Development of the Agricultural Economy in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) of Pakistan” attempted to make a significant contribution to the stabilization of the area and enhanced food security through sustainable agriculture development. It had two outcome measures: resume food production to restore and improve agriculture-based livelihoods; and re-establish and strengthen agriculture support services. The project targeted temporarily displaced persons (TDPs) who have returned to their home places. Even though the [...]

Final Evaluation of the Project “Sustainable Community-Based Management and Conservation of Mangrove Ecosystems in Cameroon”

29 October 2018
Mangrove ecosystems provide a wide range of resources and services for people's livelihoods, which at the same time give rise to strong economic, social and demographic pressure. To address these challenges, the GEF project "Sustainable community-based management and conservation of mangrove ecosystems in Cameroon” developed strategic documents on mangroves; created platforms to promote dialogue among stakeholders; produced information on the status of mangroves in Cameroon and established a permanent monitoring system for determining changes in these ecosystems; and contributed to [...]

Evaluation of FAO’s Contribution to Sustainable Agricultural Development through Integrated Natural Resource Management through Strategic Objective 2 (SO2)

23 October 2018
The focus of Strategic Objective 2 stems from FAO’s vision for sustainable agriculture, which is at the heart of the 2030 Agenda. This evaluation assessed FAO’s efforts in promoting integrated approaches for making agriculture, forestry and fisheries more productive and sustainable. These efforts have proven to be highly relevant in countries where agriculture and food systems face urgent sustainability challenges. The Sustainable Food and Agriculture (SFA) principles, developed within the SO2 framework, have been instrumental in integrating key concepts of [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
