    This detailed evaluation of the Governance and Justice (GJ) Program (formerly Governance, Security and Justice - GSJ) takes stock of progress in programme delivery and reflects on potential modifications, both programmatically and institutionally, that can be brought to the GJ Program design going forward. The evaluation found that the GJ Program has been highly effective in producing key outputs. Project innovations are well positioned for use, with cohort-based projects more relevant to communities, policymakers, NGOs and the private sector.

    Though only at its mid-term, the project has been successful in policy influence, securing funding which for the first time will be used for forest and pastoral plantations on farmers’ land, without expropriating them, and thus assuring joint responsibility for proper management. New models put forward by the project combine preservation measures with intensive irrigated fodder production, and development of complementary income-generating activities involving olive and fruit-tree plantations.

    Ten IDRC-supported community forestry projects in six countries were selected for this synthesis study. A sizable part of the rural population in these countries are designated as ‘encroachers’ or ‘trespassers’ in the ‘forest.’ Many of these forest users claim long standing customary rights to the area, some of which are formally recognized in state law, but seldom in practice.

    IAI projects funded by the US National Science Foundation (NSF) and Canada's IDRC included support of research in the La Plata Basin, which has experienced extensive land use changes. Projects examine the effects of hydrological and climate change on agriculture, as well as how land use feeds back into effects on regional hydrology and climate, both economically and socially. Several articles in this newsletter present results of these interactions, such as an economic analysis of flooding, effects on soil carbon stocks, and drivers of land use change.

    The evaluation report reviews a methodology workshop and project proposal, held in Nairobi, Kenya. At the workshop it was recommended that team members should be grounded in a shared understanding of the conceptual literature on citizenship generally, and social citizenship in particular, as well as literature on the broader question of whether decentralization necessarily improves service delivery.

    This newsletter issue provides details of the IDRC implementation of a project in Ethiopia and Uganda in scaling sustainable land management (SLM) innovations, for positive and timely outcomes for livelihoods, poverty reduction and environmental sustainability. Research evidence has shown that farmers in the region can increase their farm productivity by up to 5 times upon adoption of SLM innovations. In scaling-up, the project will pay particular attention to policy and institutional processes.
