Evaluating agroecology: what is your experience?
Dear EvalForward Community,
As evaluators working in the agriculture field, we increasingly need to assess the environmental and socioeconomic sustainability of agricultural projects and programmes.
FAO has developed a tool called TAPE aimed to support the data collection and analysis of the transition of agriculture systems towards agroecological practices. For more information about its functionalities and potential uses, see my blog here.
I would like to invite members to share their experiences in evaluating the sustainability of agricultural, and specifically agroecological, programmes:
- Have you used or tested any specific tool?
- Do you think TAPE could be useful in M&E for your projects and programmes
Please feel free to send us references to tool and guidance via email or in comments section.
Thank you, and looking forward to speaking with you all!
