Lessons from the evaluation of IFAD’s support to innovations for inclusive and sustainable smallholder agricultureBlog
In this context, during 2019-2020, the IFAD independent office of evaluation (IOE) conducted a corporate-level evaluation of IFAD’s support to innovations between 2009 and 2019 (link to the Evaluation report).
