Joint evaluation on collaboration among the United Nations Rome-based Agencies

The Independent Office of Evaluation of IFAD (IOE), with the Evaluation Offices of the World Food Programme and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, is undertaking a joint corporate-level evaluation (CLE) on collaboration among the three United Nations Rome-based agencies (RBAs) with mandates related to food security and agriculture.

The main objectives of the evaluation are:

  • to assess whether and to what extent collaboration among the RBAs is contributing to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, particularly at the country level;
  • to assess the approach to collaboration among the RBAs as set out in the 2016 paper on “Collaboration among the United Nations Rome-based Agencies: Delivering on the 2020 Agenda”, and more recently in the 2018 Memorandum of Understanding outlining the objectives, principles and areas of collaboration agreed to by the three agencies;
  • to generate evidence on the enablers and constraints to effective collaboration among the RBAs;
  • to identify lessons learned and good practices in tripartite and bipartite collaboration that can be used to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of collaboration among the RBAs, and potentially improve joint resource mobilization particularly at the country level; and
  • to make recommendations on the future strategic direction of collaboration among the RBAs.

These objectives seek to enhance accountability and organizational learning in each agency and to strengthen collaboration among the RBAs, vital to achieving the targets of SDG 2.
