    Terminal evaluation of the project “Sustainable cropland and forest management in priority agro-ecosystems of Myanmar”
    Project code: GCP/MYA/017/GFF - GEF ID: 5123 - FAO Project ID: 618969

    The project aimed to build the capacity of farming and forestry stakeholders to mitigate climate change and improve land conditions by adopting climate-smart agriculture and sustainable forest management policies and practices. Its geographical focus was five townships in three priority agroecosystem zones: Ayeyarwady Delta, Central Dry Zone, and an upland, shifting cultivation zone. There were two executing partners of equal status: the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation and the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation. The project maintained its alignment with stakeholder priorities despite some major changes that occurred between the project’s initial design and the terminal evaluation. Effectiveness overall was moderately satisfactory, with a mixed picture in achieving outputs and outcomes, and major hindrances stemming from COVID-19 and the political emergency rule. Recommendations included: future similar projects should have a bridging phase in order to plan a follow-up project for broader implementation; and centralized monitoring systems should be created along with exit strategies. Available institutional resource bases must account for the replication and scalability of project-piloted approaches and models – and avoid “development islands”.

    This brief has been prepared in the framework of the Project “Sustainable Cropland and Forest Management in Priority Agro-Ecosystems of Myanmar” (hereinafter ‘the Project’). The Project revolves around three key concepts that inform the adoption of related approaches to be promoted in Myanmar: Sustainable Land Management (SLM); Sustainable Forest Management (SFM), including Community Based Forest Management (CBFM); and Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA). In this regard, and considering that Output C1A of the Project´s aim is to support the development of a more enabling legal framework for SLM, CSA, and SFM in Myanmar, this brief aims to build on the ongoing policy debates in these areas, as well as on the work and experiences of the Project in the past 3 years, to contribute with suggestions and recommendations on how to enhance mechanisms leading to the mentioned policy goals. Additional support to this process was provided by the FAO-EU FIRST policy facilitation partnership.
