Evaluation

Mid-Term Evaluation: Tajikistan Agriculture and Water Activity (TAWA)

The purpose of the mid-term performance evaluation of the Tajikistan Agriculture and Water Activity (TAWA), a Feed the Future (FTF) activity, was to compare what had been accomplished against intended results, including any management, financial, and cost-efficiency findings. TAWA, funded by USAID/Central Asia, is a four-and-a-half-year program (2016–2020) designed to improve the nutritional outcomes of women of reproductive age and children under the age of two by increasing the yields and economic returns of household plots in Khatlon region. 

 

 

 

Report

Nutrition-Sensitive Water Supply, Sanitation, and Hygiene

This document summarizes evidence and guidance on project design and results framework indicators for nutrition-sensitive water supply, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) operations and WASH components of other sector and subsector projects. The current body of evidence on the links between WASH and nutrition provides important clues as to what nutrition sensitive enhancements are needed to achieve greater impacts on early child nutrition and human capital.

Evaluation

REGIS-ER Midterm Performance Evaluation

Following repeated large-scale humanitarian emergencies in the Sahel, USAID recognized that continuing to treat these recurrent crises as acute emergencies is extremely costly and does not effectively address their underlying causes. Resilience and Economic Growth in the Sahel - Enhanced Resilience (REGIS-ER) is a multi-sectoral resilience project that works to end the vicious cycle of crisis and help the Sahel’s most vulnerable populations stay firmly on

Summary

Cambodia Integrated Nutrition, Hygiene, and Sanitation Project (NOURISH) Impact Evaluation

Despite strong economic growth and rising living standards in the last two decades, high levels of undernutrition persist in Cambodia. Tackling childhood undernutrition requires a broad range of ‘nutrition specific’ and ‘nutrition sensitive’ interventions that act to ensure adequate dietary intake and address the multiple underlying or enabling determinants. However, when rigorously evaluated, interventions to improve dietary intake alone have not been successful in reducing stunting.
