Impact Evaluation of Feed the Future Cambodia Helping Address Rural Vulnerabilities and Ecosystem Stability (HARVEST) projectdata.usaid.gov | Last Updated 2019-08-29T20:36:32.000Z
Helping Address Rural Vulnerabilities and Ecosystem Stability (Cambodia-HARVEST) was a five-year program (2011-2016) supported under the Global Hunger and Food Security Initiative (GHFSI) and the Global Climate Change (GCC) and Biodiversity program. Cambodia-HARVEST set strategic goals to improve food security, strengthen natural resource management and resilience to climate change, and increase the capacity of the public and private sectors and civil society to support agricultural competitiveness. Implemented in four targeted provinces of Cambodia -- Kampong Thom, Siem Reap, Pursat, and Battambang -- Cambodia-HARVEST had five major components: Agribusiness Value Chains; Aquaculture and Fisheries; Natural Resource Management; Biodiversity, and Climate Change, Social Inclusion, Business Development Services; and Capacity Development. Cambodia-Harvest worked with local partners and government to initiate policy reforms and eliminate obstacles to development. This data asset enables the evaluation of the program. It is comprised of a baseline, endline and community level survey.

In this manuscript, we synthesize current and legacy data from multiple studies to better understand the distribution and diversity of soil types and their properties in the Plateau physiographic region of the West Usamabara Mountains in Northeastern Tanzania. Analysis of soil properties and soil classification in the resulting dataset of 468 sites by land use, landscape position, and elevation revealed important relationships relevant for management and land use planning. These sites occurred across a range of landscape positions and an elevation gradient from 1040 – 2240 m.a.s.l. Soil diversity at the U.S. Order and WRB Reference Group levels was higher than expected, with five U.S. soil orders and seven WRB Reference Groups described in the dataset, and the highest soil diversity occurring at lower landscape positions. We found that soil organic carbon (SOC) and pH were two master variables that were correlated most other soil properties. Sites under cultivated land uses had the lowest topsoil soil organic carbon (SOC) concentrations, and SOC generally increased with increasing elevation. Mature forest and charcoal production areas did not significantly differ in their depth distributions of SOC. Valley soils had significantly lower surface SOC concentrations but higher exchangeable bases and pH values than all other landscape positions. Soil pH decreased by an average of 3.5 units across the entire elevation gradient and decreased by 1 unit with elevation even after SOC, land use and landscape position were included in multiple regression models. Local pedotransfer functions were developed to assist with the use of pH, clay and SOC as proxies for more difficult to measure soil properties such as cation exchange capacity (CEC) and base saturation (B.S.), bulk density and total phosphorus. Phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) were identified as the most likely limiting nutrients in West Usambaran plateau soils in general. This information is critical for sustainable land management which will be applicable to the soils of other mountain complexes in the Eastern Arc chain.

The A Ganar Alliance impact evaluations (IEs) are two interrelated studies designed to assess the effectiveness of the A Ganar sport-for-development program in Honduras and Guatemala, allowing USAID to compare outcomes in different contexts, increasing the external validity, or generalizability, of evaluation findings. Both evaluations utilize a mixed-methods, randomized control trial (RCT) approach to provide quantitative estimates of project impact as well as qualitative data regarding the lived experiences of beneficiaries. Both studies answer the “proof-of-concept” question: to what extent does participation in and completion of the A Ganar program increase the likelihood that youth will obtain and maintain jobs, return to school, start their own business or reduce risky behavior? It is important to note that reduction in risk behavior was not an objective of the A Ganar program, but USAID added this metric because A Ganar was working in high violence contexts and wanted to understand programmatic effects on violent/risky behaviors. Additionally, by comparing A Ganar to similar non-sports programs, the Guatemala evaluation explores whether or not sport provides additional benefits to workforce development programming. This submission contains baseline, midline, and endline data from both countries where the program was implemented, in Guatemala and Honduras. The A Ganar program hypotheses was tested through a rigorous five-year RCT. The target population for the intervention is at-risk youth living in Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula, Guatemala City and surrounding areas. Data was collected from six cohorts (two pilot cohorts and four evaluation cohorts), each surveyed at three distinct times between 2013 – 2016: (1) a baseline completed within two weeks of the final application interview, (2) an immediate post-program follow-up, and (3) an endline occurring 18 months after program completion. Excluding the pilot cohorts, the total sample size for the study is 3,070 respondents (1,219 in Guatemala and 1,851 in Honduras). Randomized assignment was conducted at the individual level within each local implementing organization (IO) resulting in three groups: 1,389 treatment youth (A Ganar), 410 comparison program youth (non-sports), and 1,271 control youth (no program). For endline, an attempt was made to survey all 3,070 youth. Enumeration teams were able to complete interviews with 2,593 (75 percent in Guatemala and 90 percent in Honduras) of the youth.

This dataset records the expenditures for that part of food purchased on specific foods actually consumed by the household during the 7 days before the survey from the first interim assessment of Feed the Future's population-based indicaors for the ZOI in Cambodia. It has 1019 rows and 300 columns. The ZOI is the Pursat, Battambang, Kampong Thom, and Siem Reap Provinces. The sampling design called for a two-stage cluster sample. In the first stage, 84 villages were selected; in the second stage, households were selected within each sampled village. The sampling of villages was stratified by province, with the number of villages in each stratum proportional to the population in the stratum and with villages selected with probability proportional to size, based on the 2013 Commune Database. The data is split into survey modules. Modules A through C includes location information, informed consent, and the household roster. Module D includes household characteristics. Module E is the expenditures module broken up into 8 different parts. Modules F and G include the hunger scale data and WEIA index data. Data in modules H and I include mother and child dietary diversity.
