Evaluation of FAO’s contribution to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan

30 November 2017
Pakistan has more livestock than people, and FAO can help to harness this immense resource for greater food security. For the eradication of animal diseases, FAO is well-positioned to assist the federal and provincial governments in reforming related legislation and allocating the required resources. The Organization demonstrated a successful model of cooperation between federal and provincial authorities to control some animal diseases. This model should be applied to the control of other diseases throughout the country and other important constraints [...]

Mid-term Evaluation of the Project “Strengthening the Environment, Forestry and Climate Change Capacities of the Ministry of Environment and Forests and its Agencies”

30 November 2017
Bangladesh is highly susceptible to a range of annually reoccurring natural events such as flooding, water logging, cyclones, land erosion and droughts that, when combined with the low economic and resiliency levels of the population, contribute to a high number of acute onset emergencies and a range of chronic and complex emergencies. Compounding this, Bangladesh is more susceptible to the effects of climate change than any other country in the world. As investments for climate resilience grow in Bangladesh, there [...]

Final Evaluation of the Project “Strengthening Agricultural Market Information Systems Globally and in Selected Countries (Bangladesh, India and Nigeria) Using Innovative Methods and Digital Technology”

22 November 2017
Food price volatility is one of the major concerns for development practitioners and policymakers worldwide. FAO’s project aimed to address this issue by improving data reliability, timeliness and frequency through capacity development activities in national institutions, as well as developing and piloting improved methodologies in three targeted countries: Bangladesh, India and Nigeria. The evaluation found that the project was appropriate and relevant, but it was limited in scope and coverage due to the small budget and short time frame. FAO’s [...]

Evaluation of FAO’s contribution to enable inclusive and efficient agricultural and food systems (SO4)

19 October 2017
In today’s interconnected world, with globalized food trade and resource flows across different regions, a ‘systems thinking’ for sustainable consumption and production patterns is needed. FAO’s SO4 programme is about broadening perspectives - from a focus on production to a holistic agricultural and food system approach. It seeks to optimize resource efficiencies in the production and delivery of cost-effective, healthy and safe products for all, while ensuring the inclusion and integration of smallholder producers, vulnerable consumer groups and economically weaker [...]

Final Evaluation of “Progressive Control of Peste des Petits Ruminants in Pakistan” GCP/PAK/127/USA

16 October 2017
Peste des Petits Ruminants (PPR) is an animal disease which has become endemic in Pakistan since its first appearance in 1991. It spreads easily among herds and across borders and is often fatal for the sheep and goats it affects. With almost 100 million small ruminants, Pakistan’s livestock sector is highly vulnerable, with poorer households being disproportionately affected. In 2013 the Government of Pakistan and FAO set up a PPR control project, building on previous experiences in disease control. This [...]

The Evaluation of the financial support by the World Bank Group with the Development Grant Facility to support the “Partnership for Agricultural Market Information System (AMIS)” was conducted in 2016-2017. The objectives, outcomes and activities of the DGF Partnership were relevant and aligned to the higher order goal of improving transparency of the global agriculture markets. It was recognized that not many other initiatives allow this kind of partnership and technical exchange among the member international organizations. The added value [...]
