Evaluation of the Inclusive Agriculture Program

Evaluation of the Inclusive Agriculture Program

CLEAR LAC is developing a project to strengthen the monitoring and evaluation system of the Inclusive Agriculture Program (PAI), implemented by the Walmart de México Foundation and TechnoServe México.

The PAI is a program that seeks to transform the agricultural ecosystem in Mexico, through access to markets for small agricultural producers in conditions of poverty. The program offers training to producers on both agronomic and business issues, promoting their productive organization, and connects them with companies that buy their products to facilitate their productive inclusion in a market where large-scale farmers predominate.

In its collaboration with the EPI, CLEAR LAC has accompanied the program to promote evidence-based learning from similar programs around the world, incorporating relevant lessons learned. These have led to strengthening the program's theory of change, as well as other monitoring and evaluation instruments. CLEAR LAC is currently developing evaluation processes with the actors involved in the program.
