Assessment of Impact of Title II Food Aid on Food Security on Ethiopia

Africa USAID 2002 2002

DevTech participated in a multidisciplinary team that conducted a field evaluation of USAID’s Public Law 480 Title II Food Assistance in Ethiopia and made recommendations to the Agency for improving the program’s impact on food security in the country. The team evaluated the effectiveness of various local and international NGOs in providing Ethiopian households with assistance aimed at alleviating hunger, while providing incentives for employment, environmentally sustainable agriculture production, rural infrastructure investments, and small enterprise development in areas targeted for help. The evaluation also suggested ways that the Title II program could be better integrated into other USAID development assistance activities in health, education, and support for pastoralist populations.
