Final Evaluation for the “Philippine Farmers for Food” Project

The project was the final evaluation mission for Philippine Farmers for Food (PFF), a 2-year development initiative funded by the European Union and Agriterra.  Four [4] national farmers’ associations were engaged to implement the project including National Confederation of Cooperatives (NATCCO), Federation of Free Farmers (FFF), PambansangKalipunan ng mgaSamahangMagsasaka (PAKISAMA) and Kalipunan ng MaliliitnaMagniniyog ng Pilipinas (KAMMPIL).

The overall objective of PFF was the ‘improvement of food security in the Philippines through strengthening the services of national farmers’ organizations and their commodity clusters’.  More specifically, its  objective was that ‘targeted farmers and their organizations have developed coordinated and collective actions through strengthened commodity clusters, improved sustainable production capacities, acquired knowledge and skills in business management and marketing and governance of the agricultural sector’. Key result areas included: 1) Functional commodity clusters, 2) Enhanced and diversified agricultural production, 3) Improved marketing practices, and 4) Improved governance of the agricultural sector.

The BizFTCteam provided evaluation services using the OECD-DAC Five Evaluation Criteria (relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, sustainability and impact) and the EC-specific evaluation criteria (EC added value and coherence).  The final evaluation result was presented to stakeholders and a written report was provided.
