该评估报告评估了自2012年以来粮农组织营养工作战略和愿景的实施进展。自该战略颁布以来,粮农组织的营养敏感型工作大大增加,并逐步发展从而更加慎重地努力解决所有形式的营养不良问题。但是,该战略缺乏问责框架,对具体运作事宜欠缺关注。因此上述发展在何种程度上可归因于该战略仍然是不明确的。 营养是一个传统上由健康问题主导的领域,但现在人们对所谓的“基于粮食的方法”给予了相当多的关注。“基于粮食的方法”即通过关注改革粮食生产,供应和消费从而防止营养不良的方法。粮农组织被授权于该项任务,不仅有相关技术部门的长期经验,适用的工具和指标,而且有覆盖各国家 、各区域乃至全球的影响力来领导这一以粮食为基础的营养方法。然而,尽管采取了该战略,但粮农组织发现很难确定这一领域的优先事项,以至于引起利益相关者在这一过程中的困惑,受挫和竞争。 该评价提出了七项广泛的建议,旨在为粮农组织的营养工作提供新的推动力,首先通过制定一项新战略,评估在评价期间发生的主要政策和战略上的变化,并明确宣传粮农组织所承担的角色和在支持营养敏感型食物系统上所起到的"利基"作用。

在评价办公室2014-17年期间进行的主题评价的基础上,本综述对审查后的战略框架在其概念化、运作和结果方面进行了经验教训的总结。结论得出,审查后的战略框架是在快速变化的发展格局中对已有70年历史的粮农组织重新定位和重新导向所迈出的重要变革性步骤,从而更好地实现粮农组织成员国全球目标和应对粮农组织愿景的新挑战。审查后的''战略框架''促进了一种新的跨学科的粮农组织工作方式,打破了传统孤岛,并重新强调了伙伴关系。但是,粮农组织面临若干实施方面的挑战,涉及新专题领域的矩阵管理结构、技能和能力以及战略目标的沟通和资源调动有关的问题,这些问题限制了最终效力。展望未来,该综合报告分析了近期全球发展的影响,例如''2030年议程 - 可持续发展目标'',''气候变化协定''和联合国改革,为制定下一个粮农组织战略框架做准备。

The ecosystem aimed to conserve and sustainably manage by the GEF-funded project “Management of Chimborazo’s Natural Resources" is the “páramo” which offers important environmental services such as the production of water, the capture of CO2 and great variety of native crops preserved thanks to the traditional knowledge of indigenous communities. The project's achievements were significant in the Chimborazo province: raising environmental awareness on the conservation of water resources, creation of regulations to implement compensation mechanisms for environmental services in order [...]

Final Evaluation of Development of the Trans-frontier Conservation Area Linking Forest Reserves and Protected Areas in Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire

20 February 2019
In West Africa, wildlife species including elephants are found in small, isolated forest fragments. As human and economic activities expand, habitat fragmentation accelerates and animals face a growing threat of extinction. In many forest reserves, communities engage in subsistence agriculture and rely on wild animals for meat. Human-wildlife conflict has also been on the rise, with few efforts so far to solve this problem. In this context, the project GCP/RAF/447/GFF sought to construct a conservation corridor between Cote d'Ivoire and [...]

Final Evaluation of the Project “Building a Global Agenda of Action in Support of Sustainable Livestock Sector Development”

01 February 2019
Is sustainable livestock production possible, and if so, what does it look like? Livestock sector is at the center of climate and environmental issues, and plays a major role in poverty reduction and food security and nutrition. In 2011 FAO began hosting a participatory multi-stakeholder initiative to address these issues, which currently brings together 105 member organizations from Academia, Donors, International Organizations, NGOs, Public Sector, Private Sector and Social Movements, as well as producer organizations. The Global Agenda for Sustainable [...]
