Impact Evaluation of the PSNP and HAPB 2012

Since 2003, the Government of Ethiopia (GoE) has been implementing a new Food Security Programme (FSP). In 2009, this programme was reviewed and reformulated. The complementary components of the FSP are: the Productive Safety Net Programme (PSNP), Household Asset Building Programme (HABP), Complementary Community Investments (CCI) and Resettlement. Together, these components of the FSP are designed to move households into food security.

IDS, in collaboration with IFPRI and the University of Sussex, will collectively carry out the following tasks:

  • Leading the qualitative component of this project. This requires overseeing and coordinating all qualitative related activities (instrument design; training; analysis; report writing; presentation of results); and activities around quantitative-qualitative integration at instrument design phase, analysis and write-up.
  • Ensuring that the qualitative research methods for both the Highland areas of Tigray, Amhara, Oromiya and SNNPR and in the pastoralist and agro-pastoralist areas of Afar and Somali Regions, as described in the technical proposal (provided as an Annex to this contract), are successfully carried out
  • Sub-contracting the local partner, Dadimos Development Consultants, assisting them in the training of field staff, supporting and overseeing their work
  • Participating in the writing up and dissemination of the five project reports listed in the technical proposal; and
  • Providing advice to the project leader on the conduct, development and implementation of the project.

This is a follow up to the PSNP evaluation in 2010, carried out by IFPRI, IDS and Dadimos in Ethiopia .
