Mali Economic Growth Evaluation

IBTCI is conducting a final evaluation of the Integrated Initiatives for Economic Growth project, which considers millet, sorghum, and rice value chain activities in Mali, the interconnectivity of farmer cooperatives, processors, and banks, and the program’s overall effect on rural livelihoods. The findings from this evaluation will inform future economic growth programs, and will help USAID better understand which activities under the current program made sustainable gains in the agriculture sector. IBTCI is developing a quasi-experimental design, targeting randomly selected farmer producers in the regions Mopti and Sikasso, and utilizing a well-established counterfactual. We are also designing a rigorous survey that will capture information from a variety of populations both inside and outside IICEM’s intervention. The evaluation will help USAID understand the program’s impact along the entire agricultural value chain, as well as learn the effect of instability on stakeholder behavior.
