Evaluating the work of multilateral organizations’ response to COVID-19: emerging lessons and good practices from FAO’s early response

The COVID-19 pandemic is jeopardizing human health and disrupting the food systems that are the foundations of health. FAO designed a COVID-19 Response and Recovery Programme with the goal of proactively and sustainably addressing the socio-economic impacts of the pandemic. It aims to enable donors to leverage the Organization’s convening power, real-time data, early warning systems and technical expertise to direct support where and when it is most needed. In line with the United Nations (UN) approach to “build back better,” and in pursuit of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the programme’s objectives are, in the short-term, to mitigate the immediate impacts of the pandemic while, in the long-term, strengthening the resilience of food systems and livelihoods.

At its 129th session, the FAO Programme Committee requested that the Office of Evaluation conduct a real-time evaluation of FAO’s COVID-19 Response and Recovery Programme. The evaluation will take stock and assess the progress made and provide timely feedback/early assessments to foster learning and accountability.
