Review of monitoring and evaluation capacities in the agriculture sector

Review of monitoring and evaluation capacities in the agriculture sector

Carried out by the FAO Office of Evaluation in collaboration with EvalForward, the study aimed at shedding light on M&E activities, capacities and dynamics taking place in Ministries of Agriculture through interviews with officers working in monitoring and evaluation units in 23 countries and over a six month period.

How are these instruments applied, and are officials working in this sector equipped with adequate capacities and resources to carry out evaluations?

By examining these questions, the study also aimed at contributing to the debate on the relevance and importance of M&E practice in Ministries of Agriculture and stimulating additional initiatives on the topic.
