India Country Programme Evaluation National Round-table Workshop

The Ministry of Finance of the Republic of India and the Independent Office of Evaluation of IFAD are co-organizing a national round-table workshop - in collaboration with IFAD’s Asia and the Pacific Division ¬ to discuss the main issues emerging from the evaluation of IFAD’s country programme in India, as a final step in the evaluation process. The event will be held on 12 May 2016 in New Delhi and will entail the participation of representatives from the Government of India, IFAD Management and staff (including IOE), multilateral and bilateral development organizations, project management staff of IFAD-funded projects and programmes covered by the evaluation, academics and research institutions, private sector and foundations, non-governmental organizations, and selected resource persons.  

The objectives of the workshop are to:

(i) discuss the main issues emerging from the India Country Programme Evaluation;

(ii) provide inputs for the preparation of the evaluation’s Agreement at Completion Point (ACP).  The ACP will include a summary of the main evaluation findings and recommendations, and will capture the Government's and IFAD's commitment to adopt and implement the evaluation recommendations within specific timeframes; and

(iii) discuss the opportunities and challenges of the IFAD-Government of India partnership in the future, while considering the evolving development needs and priorities of the country. 


Prior to the workshop, the IFAD delegation from Rome will undertake a field visit on 9 May 2016 to observe activities of two IFAD-supported projects: Livelihoods and Access to Markets Project and North Eastern Region Community Resource Management Project for Upland Areas, Phase II. The visit will offer the IFAD delegation an opportunity to directly hold discussions with beneficiaries and their groups, project staff, state government officials and others, as well as to see project activities on the ground.
