Final evaluation of Capacity building for South African Professionals in the Field of Agriculture and Food Security (GCP/RAF/412/SAF)


This report presents the findings of the final evaluation of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) project GCP/RAF/412/SAF, Capacity-building for South African Professionals in the Field of Agriculture and Food Security (with initial emphasis on International Development Cooperation).
The project had two components: i) to capacitate South African professionals in those areas where skills are underdeveloped (e.g. management of international development cooperation, aquaculture, forestry resources and agricultural reform), conduct food security analysis and develop a sector transformation plan; and ii) to support emerging smallholder farmers through the delivery of training and technical support.
The purpose of this evaluation was to analyse FAO’s assistance to the Government of South Africa and the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF). The evaluation highlights the results of each of the project components, as well as the causes for successes and failures, over the entire period of project implementation (2007-2016). The evaluation team consulted key project informants from government, academia, development partners, private sector and other non-state actors at national and provincial levels. The evaluation team visited each of the three provinces involved in the project: Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga.
