Impact Assessment of Innovative Humanitarian Projects in Sub-Saharan Africa

The Impact Assessment of Innovative Humanitarian Projects in Sub-Saharan Africa research initiative was supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Our research focused on the development and application of a participatory assessment toolkit to measure the impact of four Gates funded projects in Africa. All four projects have taken an integrated livelihoods approach to alleviating the immediate needs of the affected communities, and to addressing the longer-term vulnerability issues resulting in famine and food insecurity.
