The FAO Investment Centre, in partnership with the World Bank, launched in late 2009 a stocktaking of agriculture and rural development (ARD) projects in the South Asia region. The stocktaking was initiated at a three-day Inception Workshop in New Delhi (5 –7 October 2009) in which FAO and World Bank staff, project task teams, government officials, national M&E experts and consultants, and other development partners including IFAD, DFID and IDRC, participated. It covered three thematicareas: (1) impacts and lessons of livelihood projects; (2) productivity and equity of irrigation and agricultural water management projects; and (3) monitoring, evaluation and learning (ME&L), including management information systems (MIS). This document presents findings and results of the third, M&E theme of the stocktaking.
