The Keys to Sustainability of a CRS Food Security Project in Niger

Catholic Relief Services (CRS) undertook a sustainability evaluation in 2015 to evaluate the sustained outcomes of its Programme de Securite Alimentaire et Nutritionelle (PROSAN) project that ran from 2006-2012 in Niger. PROSAN was implemented by three NGOs: CRS, Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere (CARE), and Helen Keller International (HKI) under the direction of United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Office of Food for Peace (FFP) as a multi-year assistance program (MYAP) to support food security activities in the Dosso, Tahoua, and Zinder regions. 

This report outlines the methodology and findings of the assessment on agricultural production and agro-enterprise, improving household health and nutrition status, reinforcing the capacities of health agents, and enhancing community resiliency. The learning brief, Three Years Later: Evaluatuing the Sustainability of a Food Security Program in Nigeralso summarizes the findings from the full report.
