    Evaluation of the project “Developing capacity for strengthening food security and nutrition in selected countries of the Caucasus and Central Asia
    Project code: GCP/GLO/674/RUS

    Caucasus and Central Asian countries are strongly committed to promoting food security and nutrition among their populations. Although good progress has been made by most countries in the region, food insecurity and malnutrition remain relatively high and greater efforts are needed to address their root causes. Moreover, wide gaps in terms of income, food security and nutrition, and access to social services have caused substantial migration from rural areas to neighbouring countries. The FAO project on developing capacity for strengthening food security and nutrition in selected countries of the Caucasus and Central Asia aims to promote cross-sectoral collaboration between agriculture, health, education and social protection sectors by carrying out six pilot projects in Armenia, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. These pilots build capacities at field and governmental level and provide an evidence base to build political commitment and coherence for the development of policies, legislations and programmes at the country, regional and global levels. The evaluation concluded that overall the project has been successful. The building of operational capacity among stakeholders and beneficiaries is processing well through the ongoing pilots, while high-level coordination and policy dialogue, and the contribution to global policy processes and frameworks need more time to materialize. The evaluation makes a number of recommendations to further enhance project design, implementation, monitoring and sustainability, and proposes a second phase of at least 1-2 years to consolidate and expand achievements.

    The agricultural sector in Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan andTajikistan is responsible for 20–50 percent of the population'slivelihoods. While the global cultivation of genetically modified (GM)crops is increasing, the authorization for cultivation or import of thesecrops as food and feed stuffs is not harmonized between countriesand is becoming increasingly more complex despite the internationalagreements, such as the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety (CPB).Additionally, the necessary expertise and facilities for comprehensiveassessment and management of risks, related to genetically modifiedorganisms, was lacking in all four countries. This project developedcapacities in all four countries, implemented the internationalobligations and ensured decent livelihoods and food security in ruralareas through increased agricultural production.
