The project “Cross-cutting: Targeted support for agricultural statistical innovation at FAO” was implemented by the UN Food and Agricultural Agency between the end of 2016 and November 2021. Funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, it aimed at improving effective evidence-based decision-making, policy uptake and influence, and Sustainable Development Goals accountability through high-quality, open, accessible, interoperable, timely and more disaggregated agriculture, food security and investment data. The purpose of the evaluation was to assess the quality and relevance of the project design and the extent to which the project has achieved its intended results. The project report presents the results of the final evaluation. An Acacia Consulting staff member led the evaluation team.
