ENGINE Impact Report

Originally published on April 13, 2016.

This impact report draws upon focus group discussions, household visits and interviews with Government of Ethiopia (GOE) frontline staff conducted in August 2015 by Land O'Lakes headquarters-based communications,nutrition, crops and livestock staff. It is also strongly informed by monitoring and evaluation, management and reporting documents prepared throughout the project period (referenced in endnotes). It is not intended to provide a comprehensive overview of each ENGINE livelihoods component, but rather highlight key innovations and lessons learned that may inform the design of future nutrition-sensitive agriculture programming in Ethiopia.
