Evaluation of research organizations in Bangladesh

Technical Report
Subtitle: 
[Technical Report # 4]

The summary comments are of two types, and respond to the Terms of Reference reproduced in Annex 2. The first objective was to gain a fuller appreciation of the capacities of the food security policy and civil society organizations operating in Bangladesh. This included an organizational description, review of projects that they have and are completing, linkages with international and national organizations, budgets, and types of activities they undertake in addition to research. The second objective was to assess the organizations relative to taking a "leadership" role in the second phase of the National Food Policy Capacity Strengthening Programme (NFPCSP) with specific reference to the program funded research. That is, to develop a set of recommendations on the advisability and of transferring the leadership for the implementation of the program funded research to one or a set of civil society and food security policy research organizations in Bangladesh, and the capacities for leadership of the research organizations and how to make this transfer, if the decision is taken to somehow share the leadership for this part of the NFPCSP.
In addition, there are issues that are revealed by the data that were collected and the other recommendations that are made throughout the text, and on which we will comment. These relate to training, the staff, budgets, publications and the research and civil society organizations themselves. We initially address the recommendations of the Evaluation Report relative to the second objective of the terms of reference, assessing the capacity of the food security policy research organizations for a leadership role in the implementation of the program funded research of the NFPCSP
