Welcome to Roots, the Independent Office of Evaluation (IOE) podcast for rural communities.

Personal stories of people who participate in IFAD-funded projects evaluated independently allow us to stop, reflect and see what is working well, what is not, why, and what needs to be corrected.

Beneficiaries' voices are references to improve projects intended to promote an inclusive and sustainable rural development.

IOE listens to these voices and disseminates them through Roots, a podcast produced for a broader audience to share knowledge and learning amongst rural communities around the world.

IOE invites radio broadcasters to use our podcasts in their schedules of programmes.
