Year Published:
Resource Type:
Evaluations and Research

This report captures baseline round data collected from May to July 2022 of the Ifaa resilience food security activity (RFSA) implemented by Catholic Relief Services (CRS) in the region of Oromia in Ethiopia. Oromia is Ethiopia’s largest, most populous region and one of its poorest, with complex and interlinked causes of poverty and food insecurity. 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), Causal Design is conducting an Impact Evaluation (IE) of the Ifaa RFSA using baseline and endline survey data in the target areas in Oromia, Ethiopia. The IE relies on a clustered randomized controlled trial (RCT) design to estimate its impact on study indicators that include food security, child nutrition, and health; women’s maternal nutrition; WASH practice; agricultural practice and production; poverty measurement; gender dynamics; and resilience.
