Since its launch in 2008 the CSDI has worked with complex issues of climate change and food security, livelihood adaptation, disaster risk reduction and agricultural innovation. The initiative will reach the end of the first phase in March 2012 and has been performing a ‘stocktaking’ exercise over the last six months. This culminated in a workshop at the FAO headquarters in Rome on September 12-14th.The objectives of the stocktaking exercise were as follows:
The stocktaking exercise was carried out through analysis of project literature, project data, and focus groups. Individual interviewswere also undertaken with project stakeholders, partners in the field and HQ staff. In addition, evaluations took place at field level in Bolivia, DRC and the Caribbean to assess project activities and outcomes. The findings of each evaluation were validated through a stakeholder workshop in each country.
An analysis of the conclusions and recommendations is underway. The results will provide the basis of a proposal for the second phase of the project.
