Final Evaluation Report: Enhancing technical coordination and backstopping of the Food Security and Livelihoods sector in the restoration and sustaining of household food security of vulnerable conflict affected populations in the Greater Darfur Region of Sudan
The evaluation focused on two consecutive projects OSRO/SUD/816 (July 2008 to September 2009) and OSRO/SUD/917 (December 2009 to June 2010) which were managed by FAO and funded by ECHO. Both projects were accorded the title: Enhancing technical coordination and backstopping of the Food Security & Livelihood (FSL) sector in restoration and sustaining of household food security of vulnerable conflict affected populations (IDPs, refugees, returnees and host communities) in the Greater Darfur Region. FAO has partnered with government institutions and both local and international NGOs for the implementation of a wide range of activities supporting the production of vegetables and certified seed; the protection of animal health; and the rehabilitation of natural resources.
The purpose of the evaluation is to examine the effects of FAO support on improving living conditions of target beneficiaries being internally displaced persons (IDPs), host communities and returnees with particular attention to women headed households. The scope of the evaluation included an assessment of all project interventions in the three States of the Darfur region (North Darfur, West Darfur and South Darfur). The evaluation conducted household level interviews, undertook focal group discussions (FGD) and conducted interviews with key stakeholders (Government Ministries of Agriculture, Animal Resources and the Humanitarian Aid Commission (HAC), UNOCHA, WFP and NGOs) both at state level, and at federal level in Khartoum, to generate primary sources of data. Secondary sources of data included needs assessment reports, project documents, interim and final reports and project outputs (including agriculture and animal health data generated during the lifespan of the two projects).
