IFPRI- Impact Surveys (level 3 of rims)


Published on

International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) organized a three days Training Workshop on ‘Monitoring and Evaluation Methods’ on 10-12 March 2014 in New Delhi, India. The workshop is part of an IFAD grant to IFPRI to partner in the Monitoring and Evaluation component of the ongoing projects in the region. The three day workshop is intended to be a collaborative affair between project directors, M & E leaders and M & E experts. As part of the workshop, detailed interaction will take place on the evaluation routines involving sampling, questionnaire development, data collection and management techniques and production of an evaluation report. The workshop is designed to better understand the M & E needs of various projects that are at different stages of implementation. Both the generic issues involved in M & E programs as well as project specific needs will be addressed in the workshop. The objective of the workshop is to come up with a work plan for M & E domains in the IFAD projects and determine the possibilities of collaboration between IFPRI and project leaders.

IFPRI- Impact Surveys (level 3 of rims)

  1. 1. Impact surveys (level 3 of RIMS)- From IFAD manual Devesh Roy and IFPRI team
  2. 2. Examples of data gathered from outcome surveys: Mark the qualitative nature of AOS • Based on the 2010 India AOS, 24% households in the Jharkhand Tribal Development Programme reported an increase in crop productivity, of which 85% attributed the increase to project activities. • In OTELP, about 55% of households surveyed experienced increased productivity, which seems to be the result of adopting technologies promoted by the project, which 65% of households did.
  3. 3. Executing RIMS: Impact indicators (To be discussed in other sessions) The anchor indicators: • Household asset index • Child malnutrition • Female/ male literacy • Access to safe water • Access to improved sanitation In addition other indicators support the above: • Dwelling floor, type of cooking fuel, household assets (electricity, radio, television, refrigerator, vehicles, locally adapted assets), farming tool, livestock ownership • Food insecurity (intensity and spread of hungry seasons)
  4. 4. Executing RIMS: Understanding Anchor Indicators of Impact Definition: A short list of impact indicators that are based on objective, quantifiable and comparable data They are not intended to replace qualitative information, but to provide a base (anchor) around which the qualitiative information can complete the explanatory framework.
  5. 5. Why Malnutrition? + Access to Food (higher incomes) FOOD HEALTH CARE NUTRITION STATUS + Food Availability (increased production, more diversified diet) + Environmental Health (safe drinking water) + Access to Services (higher incomes) + Women’s Empowerment (female literacy) (community development)
  6. 6. The measures of malnutrition Chronic malnutrition/ stunting (height for age): most relevant indicator of the overall well-being (or poverty) in community. Acute malnutrition/ wasting (weight for height): usually associated with temporary shocks Underweight status (weight for age): used to monitor the status of individual children, such as in growth promotion activities
  7. 7. Asset index: sources of indicators (Question of core and complementary surveys – will come to it in impact surveys) World Bank surveys, UNICEF Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys, Demographic and Health Surveys Floor material Number of rooms Drinking water Toilet facility Electricity, radio, television, refrigerator Vehicle- bicycle, motorcycle, car Cooking fuel IFAD added question groups for rural agricultural context Food security (length of hungry season) Household involvement in cultivating farmland Household use of farming tools Household ownership of livestock Locally specific assets and adaptations can be included and will be automatically included in the analysis
  8. 8. Executing RIMS: Assessment surveys • Random sample survey • Measure changes in asset ownership • Measure change in child malnutrition • Other impact indicators
