Evaluation at FAO

Evaluations in FAO aim to provide credible, useful and evidence-based analyses that feed into the policy and practice of FAO and its partners, therefore helping to achieve sustainable reduction of poverty and hunger, in line with the Organization’s agreed goals and strategic objectives.

Evaluation of FAO’s Contribution to Integrated Natural Resource Management for Sustainable Agriculture (SO2)

Evaluation of FAO’s Contribution to Sustainable Agricultural Development through Integrated Natural Resource Management through Strategic Objective 2 (SO2) 

The focus of Strategic Objective 2 stems from FAO’s vision for sustainable agriculture, which is at the heart of the 2030 Agenda. This evaluation assessed FAO’s efforts in promoting integrated approaches for making agriculture, forestry and fisheries more productive and sustainable. These efforts have proven to be highly relevant in countries where agriculture and food systems face urgent sustainability challenges. Read more...

Evaluation of FAO’s Strategic Results Framework

In November 2018, the FAO Programme Committee requested an evaluation of FAO’s Strategic Results Framework to assess its efficiency and effectiveness and to identify lessons that can inform the formulation of FAO’s next Strategic Results framework in 2020. This evaluation will examine the extent to which, and how the operational and management arrangements effectively and efficiently supported the implementation of the vision introduced in 2013. Ultimately, it will aim at offering evidence-based reflections upon the suitability of FAO’s Strategic Results framework components, to deliver FAO’s normative and development missions along focused programmatic priorities that take into account external opportunities and challenges.

Evaluation of FAO's contributions to the Republic of Uganda

Evaluation of FAO's contributions to the Republic of Uganda

This evaluation assesses the totality of FAO’s cooperation with the Republic of Uganda through the Country Programming Framework (CPF) 2015-2019, including the relevance of its programmes in relation to national needs and challenges, contributions made by FAO to national priorities in the areas of rural and agricultural development and capacity building, and the strategic position of FAO in the country in terms of its comparative advantages, partnerships, and synergies with other development actors. The evaluation is deemed particularly timely given the current efforts of the Country Office to better strategize its response to the refugee crisis. It will be finalised in 2019.
