Evaluations and Research

The Resilience in the Sahel Enhanced (RISE) Initiative Baseline Survey is a probabilistic household survey of approximately 2,500 households across 100 villages in the Sahel. The aim of the study is to develop a rigorous initial data set that will serve as a baseline for evaluating the impact of the RISE initiative over time. The RISE initiative includes Food for Peace projects implemented by Catholic Relief Services, Mercy Corps, Save the Children, and ACDI/VOCA. It also includes the Resilience and Economic Growth in the Sahel – Enhanced Resilience (REGIS-ER) project, whose overall objective is to increase the resilience of chronically vulnerable populations in the agro-pastoral and marginal areas of Burkina Faso and Niger, and the Resilience and Economic Growth in the Sahel - Accelerated Growth (REGIS-AG) project, launched in FY 2014 and 2015, respectively.
