Program Evaluation of the Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (GAFSP)

The Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (GAFSP), is a multilateral mechanism to assist in the implementation of pledges made by the G8++ at the L’Aquila Summit in July 2009 and set up in response to a request from the G20 in Pittsburgh in September 2009. GAFSP provides a platform for coordinated donor financing around country programs and sustainable private sector investment.

GAFSP underwent a ’Phase 1 review’, conducted in 2014 by the Meridian Institute. In 2016, the Private Sector Window undertook a ‘formative evaluation’, conducted by Enclude BV.

As the Program approaches its eighth year, and as previously agreed by the Steering and Donor Committees, a more comprehensive programmatic evaluation of GAFSP is appropriate and necessary to take stock of progress to date and inform the Program’s future direction. This Programmatic Evaluation will build on the first phase of the programmatic evaluation and also take account of relevant completed reviews1, including the Private Sector Window’s completed formative evaluation.

The aim of this second phase or ‘mid-term’ program evaluation is to:

  1. a) Assess the development effectiveness of the whole Program to date;
  2. b) Assess the organizational/operational effectiveness of the whole Program to date; and
  3. c) Document lessons and experiences to help guide further refinements to GAFSP’s operational model.

The GAFSP is a multilateral mechanism to assist in the implementation of pledges made by the G8++ at the L’Aquila Summit in July 2009 and set up in response to a request from the G20. GAFSP provides a platform for coordinated donor financing to the agricultural sector via country programs and sustainable private sector investment. As the programme approaches its eighth year, and as previously agreed by the Steering and Donor Committees, GAFSP has commissioned a comprehensive programmatic evaluation to take stock of progress to date and inform the Program’s future direction. The evaluation is assessing the development effectiveness of the whole GAFSP to date, including the organisational and operational effectiveness of the GAFSP. It will also document lessons and experiences to help guide further refinements to GAFSP’s operational model. LTS will undertake a theory-based evaluation using portfolio analysis to assess the extent to which GAFSP is achieving its objectives as well as an assessment of governance and institutional arrangement to assess operational efficiency. We will also carry out a benchmarking assessment to identify the role of GAFSP in relation to other funds, conduct cost analysis, develop country case studies and conduct contribution analysis to understand the GAFSP’s influence on agricultural policy.
