    The project was funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and implemented by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) through the Operational Partners Implementation Modality. Freshwater scarcity and pollution threaten the long-term sustainability of key sectors such as agricultural production and productivity and, therefore, food security and nutrition. The project was designed to respond to this growing problem of water stress in China. The final evaluation provided a comprehensive and systematic account of the project’s performance by assessing its design, implementation and achievement of objectives. Based on its findings and conclusions, the evaluation recommended: replicating the activities and practices within the pilot provinces and in different provinces; finalizing the sustainability plan; ensuring that, for future projects, reporting and evidence clearly address targets and are prepared in a timely manner for mid-term reviews and terminal evaluations; adopting a systematic and transparent approach to the regular reassessment of environmental and social impacts; establishing a bird monitoring system along the Chuan River in Jingdong County; and sharing experiences and lessons learned in indirect project execution in China with other FAO Country Offices and teams.
