Under the Implementer-Led Evaluation and Learning (IMPEL) Associate Award funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA), Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) is conducting an impact evaluation of the Takunda resilience food security activity (RFSA) in Zimbabwe. CARE is implementing Takunda—“we have overcome” in Shona—that aims to achieve sustainable, equitable, and resilient food, nutrition, and income security in Masvingo and Manicaland Provinces by improving income, nutritional status, and resilience to shocks and stressors of vulnerable households (HH), women, and youth. The study’s objective is to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of the Takunda activity interventions in Chivi and Zaka districts (Masvingo Province) and Buhera and Mutare districts (Manicaland) on outcomes such as poverty reduction and child nutrition.
