Document typeEvaluation report
This evaluation is presented as part of the Effectiveness Review Series 2014/15, selected for review under the resilience thematic area. The report documents the findings of a quasi-experimental evaluation carried out in December 2014 that sought to assess the impact of the climate change adaptation among small scale producers project.
The project was carried about by Oxfam in partnership with the Centro para la Promocion, la Investigacion y el Desarrollo Rural y Social (CIPRES) in the department of Chinandega between January 2011 and October 2013. This project aimed to improve small producers' understanding of and ability to adapt to climate change, especially by providing training and inputs to improve seed selection, grain storage and livestock management, and to encourage protection of the local environment. In its later stages, the project also helped direct participants share their learning with other cooperative members and their neighbours.
