15th Edition of 2017 Annual Report on Results and Impact of IFAD Operations
Every year, since 2003, the Independent Office of Evaluation of IFAD produces the Annual Report on Results and Impact of IFAD Operations (ARRI). This 15th edition of the ARRI highlights results, trends and issues in IFAD's operations based on independent evaluations conducted in 2016. The ARRI finds that, overall, performance of IFAD operations shows improvement from 2009. Currently, 80 per cent or more projects assessed against the criteria of gender equality and women’s empowerment, innovation and scaling up, relevance and rural poverty impact were rated moderately satisfactory or better. Longstanding challenges are found in efficiency and sustainability of benefits.
