Social and environmental sustainability of agriculture and rural development investments : a monitoring and evaluation toolkit (English)

The purpose of this toolkit is to provide practical guidance in the monitoring and evaluation of the environmental and social sustainability of Agricultural and Rural Development (ARD) programs and projects. The primary audience is agriculture and rural project managers, specifically field personnel, communities, client governments, other stakeholders, and World Bank Task Teams. Chapter 2 sets out the conceptual framework by examining the sectoral context of environmental and social sustainability and the resulting implications for project preparation, appraisal and implementation. Chapter 3 takes a closer look at the Bank's M&E requirements based on the results-based framework. Chapter 4 introduces appendix 1, which contains 11 matrices of sample indicators, organized by ARD subsector, of potential environmental and social changes that may be observed at outcome and impact levels as a result of a program/project's being implemented. Chapter 5 introduces appendix 2, which contains 22 individual fact sheets on the recommended tools and methods that are deemed practical for fieldwork.
