FAO has a workstream that investigates the cost-effectiveness of agricultural investments at various stages prior to emergencies, e.g. under DRR
and this cross-country study quantifies DRR investments in good agricultural practices
And Early Warning / Early Action
Behind the news stories, you should be able to find the links to available empirical reports.
Kind regards, and look forward to seeing the review

The following impact assessments of permagarden interventions

Are you aware of the SEADS <https: seads-standards.org=""/> Project? They
are currently gathering evidence (evaluations, impacts, assessments) that
show the impact of agriculture interventions in emergencies. I'm unsure if
they are considering cost-effectiveness as well, but it might be worthwhile
for you all to connect.
Sounds like a very interesting initiative. Please do share your findings!

I could share these 2 links:
Good luck with the evidence review, please keep us updated as it seems extremely interesting!

Hi all, I am working on a review of evidence of the performance of agricultural interventions and their cost effectiveness in emergencies. The emergencies could be drought, flood, earthquake, war, conflict cyclone etc. I am particularly interested in these interventions: conservation agriculture, climate smart agriculture, agroforestry, permaculture or urban/high population density food production.
I would appreciate if any one could share any reports, articles etc or links to these that might be of help.
