Such evaluations cover inter alia selected technical programmes, priority areas for interdisciplinary action, thematic topics and increasingly will assess overall progress towards achieving the Organization’s Strategic Objectives. Individual evaluation reports are submitted to the Programme Committee, along with a report from an external peer review panel and a written reaction to the evaluation by FAO’s senior management. The main evaluations considered by the Programme Committee are published in the biennial Programme Evaluation Report, along with the Committee's comments. They are meant to guide future deliberations on the Medium-Term Plan and the Programme of Work and Budget. Recent evaluation reports in relevant areas of interest and the Programme Committee’s comments are presented to COAG for information.An evaluation of the EMPRES-Desert Locust Programme (EMPRES-DL) was carried out in 2001, to examine the achievements of Phase I in the Western Region and Phase II in the Central Region1. In the Central Region, the evaluation found that countries continue to regard the preventive control of DL as a high priority and that there was evidence of increased commitment to developing sustainable DL preventive control programmes. However, progress through the region was uneven and there were doubts if all objectives could be achieved in the time available. In the Western Region, progress was good in some countries (in the Maghreb and Mauritania) but the Programme was not operational in other Sahelian countries, due to less perceived threat in recent years, decline of donor interest and lack of clearly demonstrated socio-economic benefits of preventive DL control programmes.
