Project/Program: The overarching goal of the Campaign for Sustainable Rural Livelihoods (CSRL) is to ensure sustainable rural livelihoods by reducing rural poverty and vulnerability caused by socio-economic and natural factors. The program formed a civil society network to engage small and marginalised farmers; promote underprivileged peoples’ rights in national macro-economic policies and trade agreements; and achieve a national climate change plan to ensure equitable justice in a global context.

Evaluation methodology: The evaluation scope covered all program activities from 2007 to 2013. A participatory approach was taken to maximise stakeholder mutual learning and representation. Methods included a document review and stakeholders’ input from focus groups, key informant interviews, and consultation meetings. Stakeholder sampling was purposeful to capture the perspectives of all involved.

Achievements: The program successfully engaged and mobilised a large number of local organisations (around 250) across the country, and was able to bring small agricultural producers centre stage in the policy arena. Of particular success was the program’s achievements in influencing climate change policy and action at both national and international levels.
