    Evaluation of FAO’s country programme in Lebanon 2016-2019 2020

    Lebanon is an upper-middle income country with a population of 4.5 million people. In Lebanon, the agriculture sector’s contribution to economic growth is small, and the sector receives small investment. The country has been severely impacted by the Syrian refugee crisis, with the influx of approximately 1.5 million Syrian refugees representing around one-third of the total Lebanese population of 4.5 million people. The agriculture sector has been viewed as an important contributor to the livelihood of poor and vulnerable populations, including Syrian refugees. The Syrian refugee crisis has shaped FAO’s country portfolio as agriculture is one of the three sectors allowing Syrians to work. FAO prudently integrated the donor and the government priorities by designing a resilience programme to support host communities, with emphasis on vulnerable farmers. FAO’s programme in the country addressed both emergency and longer term development needs through interventions directly supporting small-scale farmers and agro-food cooperatives, community-based subsector planning, natural resource management and capacity development at different levels. In the context of the recent financial and socio-economic crisis beginning in 2019, and renewed interest in agriculture under the United Nations-World Bank Partnership Compact 2018-2020, the Evaluation recommends that FAO assists the Government of Lebanon in transforming the agricultural sector into a more productive and job-creating one. Priority actions include: developing a sector strategy and roadmap towards sustainable and productive agriculture sector; putting in place economic incentives and removing disincentives in value chains; building human capital (planning skills of decision makers and entrepreneurial mindset of farmers); and supporting sustainable and productive use of resources.

    Georgia has been a Member of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) since 1995. In 2004, FAO strengthened its presence there by making the FAO Subregional Representative for Central and Eastern Europe the FAO Representative in Georgia and establishing a fully-fledged representation in Tbilisi. FAO is supporting national development priorities to create and implement an institutional, legal and regulatory environment, as well as lending technical assistance on key projects at the Government’s request. It is working to strengthen Georgia’s institutional disaster-management capacity and helping to align Government policies with European structures and standards, so as to fuel economic growth. The purpose of the Georgia Country Programme Evaluation (CPE) is to provide feedback that will better orient FAO’s programme and boost the impact and resonance of the next Country Programming Framework (CPF). It seeks to contribute to learning at corporate, regional and country level by drawing lessons and making recommendations to steer FAO’s engagement there. It will also enrich FAO’s synthesis of findings and guidance for country-level support.
