Evaluation of FAO’s contribution to Jordan 2017–2021

The Jordan country programme evaluation covered the period 2017–2021. The evaluation assessed FAO's strategic positioning, operational and organizational capacity, contributions, partnerships and normative values. It also identified key lessons learned and recommendations to inform the next Country Programming Framework.

The evaluation found evidence of sustainable results in FAO Jordan: FAO’s programme in Jordan responded to beneficiaries’ needs considering global and country development and humanitarian priorities. FAO is working in accordance with its comparative advantage and is recognized as a trusted source of technical knowledge and advice. It has carried out actions in Jordan to i) influence decision-making, national stakeholders and partners; ii) support and formulate strategies and policies; and iii) build the national capacity.

Recommendations were drawn up to enhance the quality of FAO’s programme design, support the formulation, uptake and implementation of policy development, strengthen capacity building efforts to be more sustainable, develop a partnership strategy to guide the collaboration with various partners, enhance the country office capacity and ensure an adequate institutional setup for gender and conflict sensitivity mainstreaming.
