Case Studies

Guatemala is highly vulnerable to climate change related disasters, such as floods and droughts. Multiple shocks lead to livelihood disruptions, reduced planting areas, food scarcity, asset and crop losses, and inadequate nutrition access. To address these challenges, World Vision, funded by USAID/Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA), is implementing the Assistance for Change and Economic Growth for Food Security (Asistencia para el Cambio y Crecimiento Económico por la Seguridad Alimentaria, ACCESO) activity. To inform future programming at World Vision on national, regional, and even global scales, the team was interested in conducting an impact evaluation on this program. Specifically, World Vision is conducting a cluster randomized control trial (cRCT), funded by Humanitarian Assistance Evidence Cycle (HAEC), to better understand the use of cash transfers on food security and water filters on drinking water quality in rural Guatemala.
