Amara Kallon's Summary

The aim of IFAD and its partnerships is to enable the rural poor to overcome poverty. This puts social mobilization and participation of the poor upfront in conceiving and implementing developing initiatives. If they are not, then relevance and sustainability of impact will be compromised. The collective experiences of partnerships between the poor, the state, NGOs, and funding organisations need to be continually assessed in order to take systematic corrective action. This is the prime purpose of monitoring and evaluation.
