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 evaluations

Thematic and strategic evaluations cover the work of the Organization at global, regional and country level on a specific topic or area of work. They are conducted to assess FAO's contributions at the strategic level and ensure that programmes are aligned to the achievement of the Organization's strategic objectives.

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

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.
