Etude de base de l’Initiative Maman Lumière II de CARE Niger

L’enquête Maman Lumière a eu lieu du 14 au 27 octobre (conduite par sept (7) équipes de collecte dans la zone d’intervention du projet notamment dans les districts de Mirriah (Dogo et Droum) et Madarouumfa (Gabi et Safo). Elle vise à établir une situation de référence sur les indicateurs d’effets et d’impact du projet. Ce qui permettra d’apprécier, à d’autres étapes de la vie du projet, les changements intervenus dans les conditions de vie des bénéficiaires notamment en matière de lutte contre la malnutrition des enfants de moins de cinq (5) ans.
La méthodologie utilisée pour cette étude est basée sur un sondage par grappe à deux (2) degrés et de type panel. Les populations cibles sont définies selon les modules: les enfants de 6 à 59 mois et les femmes de 45 à 49 pour l’anthropométrie, les enfants de 0 à 23 mois pour l’ANJE, les enfants de 0 à 11 mois pour la vaccination. La collecte des données a été effectuée sur des tablettes avec l’application ODK (Open Data Kit). Au total, 78 villages ont été consernés par la collecte des données.

Nourishing the Future Project: Baseline Study

Conceptually the "Nourishing the Future" project is positioned in the Cargill - CARE alliance with the “purpose to contribute to food and nutrition security in sustainable environmental conditions, while ensuring that farmers (men and women) and their families, obtain an improvement in their livelihoods and income.”

The conceptual orientation enables the project in Guatemala, which begins its Third Phase, to generate conditions, through the development of skills and competences in families and communities participating in the project, the development of resilience to face the effects of climate change. It seeks sustainable long-term changes so that families living in extreme poverty surpass their current state. Its main topic of work and intervention "income generation through the development of agricultural value chains (mini vegetables: green beans and blackberries) and micro entrepreneurs linked to the Cargill supply chain."

This document contains the Baseline Report of the "Nourishing the Future" Project, which begins its Third Phase in Guatemala. Read More...

Cargill Report Evaluación Cuantitativa 2019

This report outlines results from the final evaluation of Nourishing the Future Phase III. The report analyses the projects four objectives: (1) small producers and micro-entrepreneurs increased their income and resilience to climate change, (2) small producers and micro-entrepreneurs are more politically organized with stronger civil systems, (3) vulnerable families increased knowledge, have access to information on food and nutritional security and have improved their leadership skills, (4) Communities’ capacities to develop action plans to increase food and nutritional security that are sustainable from a climate change perspective.

The report compares the baseline and end line data in order to identify how the project succeeded and the impact it had on different communities where it was implemented. Read More...

Increasing Mitigation, Productivity and Adaptation through Crop-Recovery Techniques (IMPACT) II Project

In the 2015 / 2016 season, Malawi experienced severe floods and droughts that occurred as a result of El Nino weather conditions. The Malawi Vulnerability Assessment Committee (MVAC) -composed of the Government, UN agencies and NGOs- forecasted that a minimum of 6.5 million people, or 39 percent of the country's projected population of 16.8 million, would not be able to meet their annual food requirements during the 2016/2017 consumption period. Nsanje, Phalombe and Mulanje are some of the districts that were hit hardest.

CARE Malawi implemented the IMPACT project from August 2016 through July 2017 to help the people from the three districts recover. After closure, USAID’s OFDA extended IMPACT for an additional one year (August 2017-July 2018) with a humanitarian funding of US$1,125,519 to consolidate the gains achieved in the first phase and reach additional households affected by continued dry spells and the Fall Armyworm. CARE subcontracted ADRA (Adventist Development and Relief Agency), an international NGO with experience and presence on the ground, to implement activities of the second phase in Phalombe and Mulanje (as they had in Phase I).

This evaluation aimed to assess the design, performance and impact of the second phase. Read More...

Food and Nutrition Security Programme (FNSP) in Malawi (2015 – 2022): Midline Evaluation

Over 800 million people worldwide suffer from hunger and two billion do not meet their micro nutrient requirements (Global Nutrition Report, 2016). While the global starving population has gone down in recent decades, the number of people suffering from hunger in sub-Saharan Africa today is higher than ever. Malnutrition is particularly prevalent in developing countries, where it has an impact not only upon the development prospects of an entire country, but also of each individual affected. If a child does not receive sufficient nutrients up to its second year, i.e. over its first 1,000 days beginning with the early embryonic phase, the impact on growth, mental faculties and therefore learning and work¬ing potential will endure a lifetime.

This midline survey outlines important information to understand whether the project is on track. The overall objective was improving the nutrition situation of women of reproductive age (15-49) and children under two (6-23 months) in Dedza and Salima. This report outlines how well the project is meeting this goal. Read More...

Food and Nutrition Security, Enhanced Resilience: Nutrition Baseline Survey Malawi

Over 800 million people worldwide suffer from hunger and two billion do not meet their micro nutrient requirements (Global Nutrition Report, 2016). While the global starving population has gone down in recent decades, the number of people suffering from hunger in sub-Saharan Africa today is higher than ever. Malnutrition is particularly prevalent in developing countries, where it has an impact not only upon the development prospects of an entire country, but also of each individual affected. If a child does not receive sufficient nutrients up to its second year, i.e. over its first 1,000 days beginning with the early embryonic phase, the impact on growth, mental faculties and therefore learning and work¬ing potential will endure a lifetime.

The German Ministry of Economic Co-operation and Development (BMZ) launched an Initiative “On World – No Hunger” to improve food and nutrition security (https://www.bmz.de/webapps/hunger/index.html#/de). Within this initiative GIZ implements the program “Food and nutrition security, enhanced resilience” in 11 countries in Africa and Asia.

The project‘s main target group includes women of childbearing age, pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers and infants. The project‘s objective is to improve the nutritional situation of approximately 880000 women, 235000 young children and 4.000 households. Structural measures to combat hunger and malnutrition, particularly among mothers and young children, are one of the most effective ways of investing in the future of a society. Read More...

INCOME, AGENCY AND OPPORTUNITY FOR PALESTINIAN FARMERS: SOUQONA PROJECT BASELINE ASSESSMENT

The Souqona project was launched in April 2016, with funds from the Australian Government as part of the program “Palestinian Farmers Connecting to Markets,” which constitutes the third phase of the Australian Middle East NGO Cooperation Agreement (AMENCA) program in the occupied Palestinian territory.
