Research and Evaluation PROJECTS
Information Management PROJECTS
PRIME’s overall goal was to reduce hunger and poverty among Ethiopia’s pastoral communities by increasing household incomes and enhancing resilience to climate change through links to thhe market. Project implementation was based on the interaction between climate change, pastoralism, livestock and chronic vulnerability. Working at different levels and through different approaches, PRIME fostered the growth of livestock value chains, providing value chain support to the chronically food insecure and improving the policy environment through learning and collaboration with the Government of Ethiopia and non-governmental counterparts. Kimetrica managed PRIME’s monitoring, and evaluation and knowledge management systems, through its advanced, web-based M&E software, ki-projectsTM, and through the use of tablets for field data collection. In addition, Kimetrica provided research support that ranged from examining the impact of livestock disease on income and land use management, to analysing the costs and benefits of different program interventions. Improved analytical methods for beneficiary targeting and innovative methods to solicit beneficiary feedback helped the project achieve better results.
