This report is a baseline study of three Resilience Food Security Activities (RFSAs) funded by the United States Agency for International Development Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance in Niger. Part of the Resilience in the Sahel-Enhanced (RISE) initiative, the RFSAs in Niger are: Girma in the Zinder region, implemented by Catholic Relief Services; Hamzari in the Maradi region, implemented by CARE; and Wadata in the Zinder region, implemented by Save the Children. The RFSAs aim to address critical challenges in food security, nutrition, and poverty, and to improve the resilience of households and communities.
The baseline study was conducted by TANGO International with its local partner, Bagna Solutions, under the Implementer-Led Evaluation and Learning Associate Award. The purpose of the study is to provide baseline population-level estimates for a limited number of intermediate but critical outcome indicators as a comparison for the interim performance and final evaluations.
