Strategic Evaluation of FAO’s work on tenure, rights and access to land and other natural resources. Final evaluation report

January 2012
Martin Adams (Team Leader), Hans Gregersen & Zongmin Li

Includes development of FAO’s interest in tenure, rights and access to land and natural resources (TRA); land sector: assessment of performance 2006-10; key cross-cutting themes and approaches (gender, emergencies, Voluntary Guidelines, large-scale land acquisitions); review of FAO support to TRA for other natural resources (water, forests, wildlife, fisheries); future directions of FAO support to TRA; recommendations. Finds that there is a lack of coordination and convergence between the various groups within FAO that deal with TRA issues and that there are few real incentives to change this situation. Recommends more systematic monitoring and evaluation of project performance.
