    Information note: Strengthening national forest monitoring systems through a comprehensive capacity needs assessment 2020
    Also available in:

    A lack of institutional and individual capacity often undermines the long-term impact of otherwise technically sound programmes. To support efforts towards sound and impactful forest monitoring, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has developed a national forest monitoring system (NFMS) assessment a tool to help countries identify capacity gaps and weaknesses in order to address their real needs in a targeted manner.

    Capacity Assessment for Improved Nutrition in Uganda 2015
    Also available in:

    Although the number of people living below the poverty line in Uganda has decreased by 50% in the last decade, malnutrition has increased from 27% to 30%. In the same period, per capita daily food consumption fell by 9.5%, representing a decline in dietary energy supply. While there are several reasons for this, Uganda’s Nutrition Action Plan (UNAP) for 2011-16 has identified a lack of capacity as one of the five main factors driving persistent malnutrition.

    The FAO Expert Consultation Workshop on the “Development of methodologies for the global assessment of fish stock status” took place in Rome, Italy, from 4-6 February 2019. The overall objective of the workshop was to present to a group of experts in stock assessment, fishery management and policy development a new tool (now called sraplus) that can be used to assess the status of currently unassessed stocks. More in detail, participants were asked to i) review the technical design, soundness and practical applicability of the new methodology, ii) evaluate its performance with simulation data and real fisheries data, iii) discuss its advantages and disadvantages as well as any necessary adjustments, and iv) design a plan for steps forward towards its application in global fish stock assessment. The workshop participants contributed in their individual capacities to the discussions which resulted in a set of recommendations on how to improve the tool and the data that is provided to the assessments.
