NETWORK WEAVING FOR REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT: An Evaluation of the Caucasus’ Agricultural Alliances in Armenia and Georgia Using Social Network AnalysisThis report presents the findings of an evaluation of the agricultural alliances in Armenia and Georgian established by Oxfam in 2011 in Armenia and 2013 in Georgia using a framework that posits three stages of alliance development (Connecting, Cementing, and Scaling) coupled with the social network analysis technique. Using network mapping and metrics, the structure and characteristics of sharing information and collaborating in advocacy in these alliances were assessed to determine which stage of development the FSN networks most closely match at this time. Knowing the current characteristics and structure of these networks will help Oxfam and network members weave more effective and sustainable networks for food security and nutrition in the Caucasus region.
