Angola Country Strategy and Programme Evaluation: National Workshop

22 ماي 2018

The Angolan Ministry of Agriculture and Forest (MINAF) and the Independent Office of Evaluation of IFAD (IOE) have co-organized a national workshop for the first Angola Country Strategy and Programme Evaluation (CSPE), as a final step in the evaluation process, which took place in Luanda on 22 May.

The workshop presented the main findings and recommendations of the evaluation conducted by IOE, analysing 12 years of work that IFAD has undertaken together with the Angolan government. The evaluation analyses one completed and three on-going projects in 8 of Angola's 18 provinces for a total project cost of US$ 107.3 million, of which US$ 54.2 million are financed by IFAD. It was preceded by the signature on Monday 21, of the evaluation’s Agreement at Completion Point (ACP) by the Minister of Agriculture and IFAD’s representative of the Associate Vice-President.

The workshop was chaired by the Minister of Environment, who represented the Government together with the Minister of Social Action, Family and Women’s Promotion, the Secretary of State for Agriculture and the Secretary of State for Commerce. In total, the workshop was attended by around 70 persons, including IFAD senior management and staff, representatives of multilateral and bilateral development organizations, project management staff of IFAD-funded projects and programmes covered by the CSPE, academics and research institutions, private sector and foundations, non-governmental organizations, and selected resource persons.

The objectives of Angola CSPE national round-table workshop were to:

  • Discuss the main findings, conclusions and recommendations from the CSPE;
  • Discuss key issues and strategic priorities for the preparation of the future Country Strategy with the final goal of enhancing development effectiveness and eradicating rural poverty.

The workshop focused on three broad themes emerging from the Angola CSPE, as follows

Theme 1. Lessons learned about integrating gender equality and engagement with youth from IFAD’s supported projects in Angola;

Theme 2. Lessons learned about sustainable natural resources management and climate change adaptation from IFAD’s supported projects in Angola;

Theme 3. How can IFAD support Angola through its projects, in strengthening Human Resources capacity among the implementing agencies in Angola;

Independent evaluation shows that IFAD's support to Angola has helped small farmers to improve their livelihoods

22 ماي 2018

Luanda, 22 May 2018 – Development projects supported by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) have contributed to improve the productivity and production of main staple crops, which enabled households participating in the projects to move beyond subsistence farming, according to the findings of a new evaluation report presented today in Luanda. 

The report, conducted by the Independent Office of Evaluation of IFAD (IOE), has analysed over  12 years, from 2005 to 2017, and has evaluated one completed and three on-going projects in eight of Angola's 18 provinces for a total project cost of US$107.3 million, of which $54.2 million was financed by IFAD.

Results

The results of the evaluation show that IFAD has helped to improve the production and productivity of four staple crops: bean, cassava, maize and potato. IFAD is also contributing to the development of small-scale freshwater capture fisheries and aquaculture. By the end of the Market-Oriented Smallholder Agriculture Project,  the Crop Production Index (which measures agricultural production for each year relative to the baseline  defined in 2011) showed an increase in productivity of 66 per cent.

Among the successes, capacities were significantly developed among staff of the national agricultural extension system. A total of 88 government extension officers attended trainings on improved production techniques that reinforced the quality of their support and assistance to farmers.

Challenges for the future

The evaluation highlights the achievements as well as the issues that still need to be addressed. "In a country where 44.2 per cent of the population works in the agriculture sector, creating sustainable and attractive opportunities in rural areas is crucial. This evaluation offers valuable recommendations for the way forward," said Oscar A. Garcia, IOE Director.

The evaluation gives recommendations for future collaboration between IFAD and the Angolan government in the fight against rural poverty. One of them is to address key issues in relation to land tenure and agro-ecology in order to promote a sustainable and fair food system. Another is to make capacity development (at the individual and institutional levels) one of the pillars and cross-cutting principles of IFAD's work in Angola. 

Garcia added, “The report shows that living conditions of small producers have improved, but it also shows that the most vulnerable, such as women and youth, were not totally reached." Indeed, the national demographics of the country show that youth can play a major role in the national development process. Future initiatives between IFAD and the Government should contribute to transforming agriculture into an attractive sector in which young people can find opportunities for a dignified livelihood. Women should also have leadership roles in farmers' organizations and associations, since women are among the main  players in Angolan agriculture.

IFAD has invested in rural people for 40 years, empowering them to reduce poverty, increase food security, improve nutrition and strengthen resilience. Since 1978, we have provided US$20.2 billion in grants and low-interest loans to projects that have reached about 476 million people. IFAD is an international financial institution and a specialized United Nations agency based in Rome – the UN’s food and agriculture hub.

The Independent Office of Evaluation (IOE) conducts evaluations of IFAD-financed policies, strategies and operations to promote accountability and learning. The main purpose is to contribute to improving IFAD's and its partners' performance in reducing rural poverty in recipient countries. IOE's independent evaluations assess the impact of IFAD-funded activities and give an analysis of successes and shortcomings – to tell it the way it is – as well as identify factors affecting performance. Based on the key insights and recommendations drawn from evaluation findings, IOE also shares IFAD’s knowledge and experience in agriculture and rural development with a wider audience.

Oscar A. Garcia, Director of the Independent Office of Evaluation, part of the IFAD delegation visiting Ethiopia

21 ماي 2018

Members of the Executive Board and senior staff of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) travelled to Ethiopia from 14 to 18 May 2018 to visit the Participatory Small Scale Irrigation Development Programme, Rural Financial Intermediation Programme and Pastoral Community Development Project, co-funded by IFAD and the Ethiopian Government. The delegation also met with high-level government officials, representatives of the United Nations system in Ethiopia and other international financial institutions working in the country.

This offered the Executive Board an opportunity to hold direct discussions with beneficiaries and their groups, project staff, government authorities and others, as well as to see project activities on the ground. Oscar A. Garcia, Director of the Independent Office of Evaluation of IFAD (IOE) was one of the high officials who accompanied the delegation.

Ethiopia has IFAD’s largest portfolio in Africa. Implementation performance is generally impressive, thanks to the strong leadership, a high degree of accountability and efficiency in the administrative system. Since 1980, IFAD has invested US$602.5 million in 18 programmes and projects in Ethiopia with an overall cost of US$1,374.5 million and benefiting 11 million households. IFAD has also provided US$28 million in debt relief under the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries Debt Initiative.

The objectives of the country visit were to strengthen the partnership between IFAD’s Executive Board, the Government and IFAD Management; to reflect on the portfolio’s progress; and to discuss the way forward and future collaboration.

Mr Garcia delivered a presentation on the IOE 2016 country programme evaluation of IFAD-funded operations in Ethiopia. The main recommendations refer to: (1) focus on fewer thematic areas, (2) use longer-term programmatic approach to lending, (3) sharpen the focus on non-lending services, and (4) enhance strategic partnerships.

The nine members of the Executive Board who visited the project are representatives from Algeria, Cameroon, China, Brazil, Kenya, Nigeria, Mexico and Pakistan.

2018 UNEG Evaluation Week

07 ماي 2018

Between 7 and 11 May 2018, over 170 participants from more than 40 United Nations agencies worldwide came together at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in Rome, Italy, for this year’s United Nations Evaluation Group (UNEG) Evaluation Week. This year’s event was jointly organized by the three UN Rome-based agencies: FAO, IFAD and the World Food Programme (WFP).

The UNEG is an interagency professional network that brings together the evaluation units of the United Nations (UN) system, including UN departments, specialized agencies, funds and programmes, and affiliated organizations.

UNEG's mission is to promote the independence, credibility and usefulness of the evaluation function and evaluation across the UN system, to advocate for the importance of evaluation for learning, decision-making and accountability, and to support the evaluation community in the UN system and beyond.

The Evaluation Week is a yearly event which provides a unique forum for UNEG members to get together, share and exchange latest activities, best practices and lessons as well as knowledge in evaluation and, this year, it was comprised of three key components:

  • The Professional Development Seminar on 7 May
  • The Evaluation Practice Exchange on 8 May and 9 May
  • The Annual General Meeting on 10 May and 11 May

The one-day Professional Development Seminar was held on the first day of the UNEG week and was attended by 120 evaluators. The purpose of the seminar was to provide training to participants on topics which had emerged as highly useful in evaluation work, based on the UNEG members’ survey.

The seminar consisted of four parallel topics, and each topic ran through the entire day. The topics selected were:

  1. Approaches to impact evaluation
  2. Data visualisation tools
  3. Introduction to SenseMaker
  4. Ethics in evaluation

On Tuesday 8 May, the Evaluation Practice Exchange (EPE) opened with the three Directors of the evaluation offices of the Rome-based agencies sharing some of their personal experiences as evaluators.

The Evaluation Practice Exchange (EPE) allowed UNEG members to meet face-to-face, to share and exchange experience, best practices and lessons and knowledge in evaluation, and to develop their expertise on specific subjects related to evaluation approaches and methodologies.

The EPE had three main themes, covering relevant aspects of the work of evaluation professionals. Under each of these themes, several topics were discussed in separate sessions. These themes were:

  1. Managing Evaluations
  2. Evaluation Principles
  3. Evaluation Methods

Contributing to theme 1, Managing Evaluations, the Director of the Independent Office of Evaluation of IFAD (IOE) and UNEG Vice Chair for Use of Evaluation, Oscar A. García, convened the session on "Quality Assurance beyond the checklist: how can we ensure the reports are evidence-based?".

As part of theme 2, Evaluation Principles, Fabrizio Felloni, Deputy Director of IOE, convened the session on "Evaluation and hindsight: assessing past interventions against yesterday’s standards or today’s wisdom (e.g. in light of new knowledge on climate change, gender, etc.)."

Michael Carbon, IOE Senior Evaluation Officer, convened the session on "Making the best use of Theories of Change in Evaluations", which was part of theme 3, Evaluation Methods.

Thus, the Professional Development Seminar and EPE components served as a learning platform for capacity building, reflection, reassessment and recommitment towards advancing the effectiveness, efficiency, impact and sustainability of the UN system’s work by promoting and strengthening evaluation.

On 10 and 11 May the Heads of the evaluation units of UNEG convened at their Annual General Meeting (AGM) to review progress and results of the work programme and to decide on strategies and work areas for the following year. The AGM provided an important business forum to review UNEG’s current work and discuss its upcoming strategies and work programmes.

Who attended: UNEG Heads, observers, staff members from UNEG member agencies, and invited partners; for business decisions, one vote per agency.

UN Women and Innovation Norway’s Commemoration of the International Women’s Day

08 مار 2018

Oscar Garcia, IOE Director, participated at the UN Women and Innovation Norway’s Commemoration of the International Women’s Day for Strengthening Female Entrepreneurs towards 2030: How to secure financial inclusion and investment in women-owned business? This event  took place under the United Nations Secretary General’s High-Level Panel on Women’s Economic Empowerment on Thursday, 8 March 2018.

Mr Garcia delivered a presentation on the recently concluded Evaluation Synthesis on Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment. The report analyzed what were the practices that have delivered transformative and thus relevant gender equality results? To what extent did they challenge existing social norms and the distribution of power and resources between men and women? The Independent Office of Evaluation of IFAD (IOE) conducted an evaluation synthesis to identify gender-transformative practices. It reviewed 57 evaluation reports and 121 practices in 20 different countries. The report identifies practices that have delivered gender equality and women's empowerment results. Particular emphasis was on those practices that are transformative and therefore relevant in the context of the Agenda 2030.

The dynamic programme included remarks from HRH Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, UN Women’s Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Karin Finkelston, Vice President Partnerships, Communications and Outreach, International Finance Corporation, UN women Ambassadors: Rachel Roy, Wade Davis and Nina Ansary and several other notable speakers.

20 countries, 10 lessons – IOE reviewed what works for gender equality in IFAD-supported projects

27 فبر 2018

Gender equality  and women's empowerment are at the heart of IFAD's mandate of rural poverty reduction. Integrating a gender perspective into IFAD's operations has been an important priority. But, we must also think about effectiveness: What were the practices that have delivered transformative and thus relevant gender equality results? To what extent did they challenge existing social norms and the distribution of power and resources between men and women? The Independent Office of Evaluation of IFAD (IOE) conducted an evaluation synthesis to identify gender-transformative practices. It reviewed 57 evaluation reports and 121 practices in 20 different countries. The result: 10 lessons for transformative change.

Practices for transformation

The report identifies practices that have delivered gender equality and women's empowerment results. Particular emphasis was on those practices that are transformative and therefore relevant in the context of the Agenda 2030: Leaving 'no one behind' means  that those hardest to reach will benefit in an equitable manner. Reaching out to women is important, but we need to increase our efforts to also include those who are less visible, for example indigenous women, young women, elder women, migrant women. Finally, leaving no one behind also requires to  address the economic, political and cultural barrier of gender inequality.

IFAD supports  gender-transformative changes  in four areas: improved access to resources and opportunities; more equal work burden an reduced time poverty of women; increased decision-making power; and changes in norms and values around gender equality.

Lessons

  1. Empowering and gender transformative approaches. Interventions have to be designed for  transformative change; general and inclusive approaches to rural poverty reduction are less likely to be transformative.
  2. Culture sensitivity  and good contextual analysis. Transformative strategies have to address the root causes of gender inequality and challenge gender roles and power relations, based on a good understanding of the socio-economic context.
  3. Multiple and complementary activities. It requires a package of activities to facilitate changes in gender roles and relations.
  4. Protection against violence. Protecting women from violence can transform women's live and enable them to claim public spaces.
  5. Promote unconventional roles and reduce women's workloads. Promoting  new roles helps shifting mind-sets and commonly held beliefs. The issue of high workloads, often unpaid, must be squarely addressed.
  6. Support women's organisations. Credit, marketing and community planning can provide platforms for mutual support and interest. Social mobilization and enhanced leadership helps women to claim political spaces.
  7. Highly participatory approaches. Participatory approaches can support gender-inclusive outcomes, if combined with specific strategies to target women.
  8. Policy engagement. A transformative approach must reach out to decision makers to ensure that positive changes on the ground are sustainable and are scaled up. 
  9. Working with men. Men are often the gatekeepers of customary practices that limit women's access to resources or public spaces
  10. Effective implementation and adequate resources. Resources for gender related activities need to be adequately budgeted and used.

Stories from the Field - We are now economically independent

23 فبر 2018

IOE evaluation shows how IFAD's projects in Peru have contributed to improve women's lives. Better incomes and stronger women’s organizations are notable achievements. Among the challenges, farmers have pointed out ownership of infrastructures and a guarantee of secure markets.

"Thanks to this project, we are economically independent from our husbands, “says Nancy Guerrero, member of the Comité de vaso de leche las tres Marías (Vessel Committee of the three Marias), an association for cuy [guinea pig] production. “Before, they were the only ones earning a salary for the families. Now we do as well. My son has just started the University and I will invest my money in his future." She feeds her guinea pigs while talking and is clearly proud of their numbers and their health.

Nancy lives in the San Martín region, a remote area between the mountains and the jungle. The region is very rich – abundant water, rich soil, good weather, and other natural resources. But the region is poor, mainly due to the lack of opportunities for the poorest communities.

Nevertheless, San Martín's people are not idle. Here and there, associations develop projects to improve living conditions. Some of them count on IFAD's support and are achieving remarkable results.

Before IFAD's support, the cuyes did not at a sufficient weight to be sold; sometimes they even died. After receiving training through the project, association members knew how to feed them properly and the kind of medicines they needed to survive prevalent illnesses. Now the prices they get in the market are significantly higher.

Not far from Nancy's village, Elsa Vargas del Castillo peels bananas with incredible speed and dexterity; her hands are marked by years and years of work. "Some years ago, the situation was very difficult,” she explains. “There weren’t even shops to buy food. We raised our children thanks to the banana flour. We learned how to cultivate banana from our parents. Now our production has improved. We have machines and a technician who supports us so we are able to produce our products at high quality for the markets. We urgently need a secure market to go ahead."

Elsa is a member of the Asociación de emprendedores agropecuarios los Naranjos (Naranjos Agricultural Entrepreneurs Association). Thanks to the technical support they received and the machines they bought, they are now producing banana flour, marmalade and cakes. The quality and quantity of the products have increased; they also meet the health requirements that allow them to sell their products in the formal market.

The families of the region have seen their income grow from 1.91 soles (USD 0.58) to 6.85 soles (USD 2.09) per day. People from San Martín, like Elsa and Nancy, are proud of their achievements and want to go further. IOE's evaluation will help IFAD accompanying them on the path ahead.

More information on the evaluation.

These stories result from field visits to Peru made by the Independent Evaluation Office of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IOE). IOE evaluated six IFAD-supported projects implemented between 2006 and 2016 in Sierra Sur, Sierra Norte, Selva Alta and the area around the Apurímac and Mantaro rivers – some of the poorest and most remote rural areas in the country.
