Improving Regional Food Security in the South Caucasus through National Strategies and Smallholder Production: Project Final Evaluation Summary
The European Union-funded project Improving Regional Food Security in the South Caucasus through National Strategies and Smallholder Production launched in September 2013 with the overall objective of contributing to the improvement of food security and nutrition (FSN) in the South Caucasus. It aimed to achieve this through smallholder farmers' representation in governance processes, and by encouraging gender-sensitive FSN strategies in order to change attitudes around FSN and improve agricultural production practices, including marketing and increasing demand for healthy and locally produced food. The project generated a wide range of evidence on FSN and stimulated a public discussion on the gaps and challenges in policy and practice.
The final evaluation of the project aimed to assess the overall impact of the intervention, including its relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, sustainability and impact.
