Meta-Evaluation of Action Against Hunger Agroecology and Agricultural Value Chains Projects

This strategy is built around four objectives:

  1. Ensuring agriculture rehabilitation after acute crises;
  2. Increasing the resilience of small producers and agro-sylvo-pastoral systems;
  3. Allowing access to a diversified diet;
  4. Developing advocacy in favour of family farming

The strategy has been implemented through trainings and a number of projects in several countries. Along with the implementation of projects related to agroecology, some activities related to agricultural value chains have recently been initiated in few countries. The FSL sector is now preparing its next 5 year plan. In this view, there is a need to reflect on the performance of agroecology and value chains projects and learn lessons from these initiatives. An external meta-evaluation will support this analysis.


The main objective of the consultancy is to conduct a meta-evaluation of Action Against Hunger agroecology and agricultural value chains projects to reflect on the performance of these projects and learn lessons from these initiatives. The objective of the meta-evaluation is to document the diversity of agroecology and agricultural value chain approaches and solutions and their performance (output, outcome), and to produce a set of recommendations, both operational and strategic. The lessons drawn from the meta-evaluation will be used to inform future designs of similar projects in the framework of 2021-2025 AAH FSL action plan.
