Evaluation of Agricultural Growth & Employment Programme (AGEP), Bangladesh
Through supporting development of the agriculture, livestock and fisheries sectors in Bangladesh, Danida has promoted the farmer field school (FFS) approach since the 1990s. An evaluation of FFS was undertaken in 2011 laying the foundations for using the same approach in two components of an Agricultural Growth and Employment Programme (AGEP). The evaluation of AGEP therefore focuses on documenting the achievements and analyzing the outcomes of the FFS approach in the period 2013-18. Almost 1 million farmers participated in the farmer field schools. A household survey was carried out in order to examine impact in terms of inter alia, incomes, nutrition and employment, with a particular focus on women’s empowerment through participation in FFS. The evaluation was carried out by an independent team working with Nordic Consulting Group (NCG) and Orbicon.
