Lack of external coherence in agriculture projects can cause antagonism among interventions or implementation strategies and annihilate the results and progress achieved. This often leads to strategic behaviour (bias) on the part of beneficiaries.
Women constitute the majority of the agricultural labour force in small-scale and subsistence farming. What are the lessons learnt from agriculture programs with regards to the activities of the women in the agricultural sector?
Have you ever been involved in the evaluation of social protection programs? What is the approach to assessing such programs? What are the key elements that any expert would be looking for in social protection activities/programs?
What constraints do you encounter during the different evaluations of programs and interventions on rural development, agriculture and food security? How do you get around them? And which are the ones you cannot get around?
I would be interested in examples from your evaluation experience of projects that have been successful in improving food security, and in particular food access, in extremely poor communities: could you please share them?
