On – Farm Irrigation Development on the Old Lands
Impact Assessment Study
OFIDO – funded by the IFAD
August 19, 2019 | EcoConServ proudly announces to have been awarded the contract to prepare an Impact Assessment Study for the On Farm Irrigation Development on the Old-Lands (OFIDO) Project, funded by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).
OFIDO has been launched in 2012 with the overall goal of improving the livelihoods of the rural poor in the project area through targeted interventions to enhance agricultural production and thereby raise household incomes. The project composes four components: Irrigation & water management, agriculture competitiveness enhancement, rural enterprise and micro finance development, and project coordination and management.
EcoConServ has been contracted to assess to what extent the project interventions have contributed to achieve the set goals of improving the livelihoods of the rural poor. Specifically, OFIDO is interested in measuring the impact on beneficiaries at least one year after the service provided by the training, extension, and rural finance activities. Accordingly, this assignment will be prepared to determine the social, environmental and economic impacts in the targeted areas by identifying both the failure and success factors.
