  45. 45. The management and logistics not only of the visit but the project generally are excellent, and we feel the project is making great headway in ensuring close cooperation between the consortium partners and with local government agencies in Barisal. The approach towards generating small-holder commercial strategies from the ‘ground-up’ was demonstrated well and appears to be a highly innovative means of supporting farmers to make better business decisions in cooperation with the local private sector.

Mid-­‐term  Evalua3on  of  the  Technology  Transfer  for  Food  Security  in  Asia   Programme     •  •  •  •  Partnerships  approach  (p.27)  –  ‘The  ANEP  project  comes  closest  to  the  original  inten6on,   having  a  good  mix  of  research  and  development-­‐oriented  partners,  and  integra6ng  them   effec6vely’   Use  of  the  most  effec9ve  organisa9ons  (p.28-­‐29)  –  ‘ANEP  is  the  only  ac6on  that  really   appears  to  be  working  with  a  wide  range  of  effec6ve  organisa6ons  –  not  only  limited  to   the  partner  organisa6ons,  but  also  including  strong  links  with  private  sector  organisa6ons   from  very  large  mul6-­‐million  euro  agricultural  processing  and  mechanisa6on  companies,   through  sales  networks  of  agricultural  input  suppliers,  to  rela6vely  small  traders’.   Effec9veness  and  poten9al  from  impact  (p.33)  -­‐  ‘Effec6veness:  The  project  undertakes  a   wide  range  of  technology  adapta6on/  demonstra6ons  and  studies  the  results  carefully.     There  is  a  Monitoring  and  Results  Measurement  programme  which  provides  regular   informa6on  including  actual  costs  and  returns  for  the  beneficiaries,  so  firstly  it  is  known   already  that  many  technologies  are  being  used  successfully  and  secondly  management  can   respond  quickly  where  issues  are  iden6fied.    The  guiding  principle  of  ANEP  is  to  make   markets  work  for  the  poor,  but  it  is  the  only  TTFSA  ac6on  to  have  developed  an  urban   nutri6on  programme.    This  appears  to  be  a  highly  effec6ve  project.   Impact:    Beneficiary  numbers  are  high,  both  in  Bangladesh  and  Nepal.    [...]  The  associa6on   with  major  industries,  for  instance  in  supply  of  agricultural  machinery  and  an6cipated  soon   in  the  purchase  of  maize,  will  lead  to  wider  impact  through  increased  availability/  market   demand  respec6vely.     This project is funded by!
