    Guidelines for Input Trade Fairs and Voucher Schemes
    Version 1
    2013

    One of the main causes of food insecurity for farmers in rural areas is limited access to agricultural inputs. Therefore, one strategy to address the vulnerability of food-insecure farmers is to improve smallholder access to these inputs. To this end, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) sets up input trade fairs and voucher schemes to provide poor, vulnerable and foodinsecure farmers with access to the inputs (e.g. seeds, fertilizers and hand tools) they nee d to sustain their agricultural livelihoods.

    The EU-funded MALIS project ran a series of nine input trade fairs in Oddar Meanchey and Preah Vihear Provinces in north-west Cambodia during 2014. The purpose of these fairs was to provide quality inputs to farmers, at the time when they were most needed, and to ensure that families had access to basic kitchen equipment for food preparation and feeding. The fairs proved to be highly effective as a mechanism for achieving the purpose.

    This evaluation assesses FAO's Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA) portfolio and offers lessons to improve programming. Provided for immediate relief and to strengthen resilience and livelihoods, CVA modalities include unconditional cash transfers (UCTs), conditional cash transfers (CCTs), cash for work (CFW), vouchers, and input trade fairs (ITF). The evaluation examines the relevance, partnerships and coordination arrangements, effectiveness and efficiency, gender equality and inclusion, and enabling environment for delivering CVA.The assessment is based on an extensive review of internal documents and external literature, an analysis of 50 FAO CVA projects and 170 FAO evaluations, interviews with 69 key stakeholders, an online survey of FAO’s 85 Country Offices, eight country case studies and three case studies of comparable UN agencies.Its main recommendation was for FAO management to develop a vision and strategy specific to CVA so as to enable their more impactful and more efficient delivery.
