Survey Watch: Actionable Research to Inform Rehabilitation and Rebuilding of Livelihoods in Conflict Affected Communities in Ethiopia
CGIAR Initiative on National Policies and Strategies
- Impact Area
The recent conflicts in Ethiopia have caused massive displacements, loss of lives and livelihoods. Identifying efficient and cost-effective investments to rebuild and sustainably rebuild livelihoods quickly is one immediate and crucial step. The overall objective of the project is to conduct actionable research to inform the rehabilitation and rebuilding efforts in Ethiopia.
The target group of the project are the Feed the Future Zone of Influence that constitutes conflict affected and non-conflict affected households. The study duration is proposed to be between June 2023 – December 2024.
Enumerators training is scheduled to be held in late October for 10 days. The team aim to build on large pre-conflict household data collected by the Ethiopia Strategy Support Program (ESSP – IFPRI) and partners and conduct complementary new rounds of surveys to track a variety of outcomes. The team will commence the data collection in the selected areas in November 2023.
