Roots' interview on country strategy and programme evaluation in Tunisia (In Arabic)

Languages: English, French, Spanish

Over the last 15 years, Tunisia has made great progress in reducing rural poverty. IFAD has been working in partnership with the Government since 1980 to improve the living conditions of rural populations.

This month, Roots spoke with Philippe Remy, Country Programme Manager of IFAD in Tunisia, and with Ali Abaab and Diane Abi Khalil, two evaluators who worked on the second country strategy and programme evaluation in Tunisia, carried out by the Independent Office of Evaluation of IFAD. The evaluation covers six projects financed by IFAD between 2003 and 2018, which contributed to an increase in agricultural and livestock productivity and diversification.

Despite the significant progress made so far, there are still some areas to be improved. The evaluation noted that there have been sustainability risks related to the environment and limited scaling up of the projects' results.
