Two Field-level Beneficiary Assessments to be Undertaken by Afghanistan-Based Entities (NGOs, Consulting Firms):
FAO carries out country evaluations with the aim to improve the relevance and performance of FAO’s interventions by providing accountability and deriving lessons for better formulation and implementation of country-level policies, strategies and activities in the future. Country evaluations look at FAO’s work from the standpoint of its utility to the country. They provide FAO’s stakeholders with a systematic and objective assessment of the relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, impacts and sustainability of the programmes and interventions undertaken by FAO in the country, including emergency, rehabilitation and development activities. Country evaluations can support the formulation and review of the Country Programming Framework and FAO contributions to the UNDAF, and they also seek to analyse how FAO’s interventions in the country can best promote the Organization’s comparative advantages and relate to FAO’s overall strategic objectives and core mandate.
