In this project we study the impact of an aid-financed agricultural programme in Kenya. This research project aims at determining whether efforts in extension services delivery and farmer organization has led to improvement in livelihoods of the farmers and reduction in poverty, compared to individuals who did not take part in the program. The project also includes an evaluation of the broader economy-wide impact of changes in agricultural productivity. The methodological approach in this project includes and combines two traditions in evaluating the impact of a specific policy change. The first approach uses modern micro-econometric tools and a unique database, which includes 2000 farmers in Kenya. The second approach is a computable general equilibrium (CGE) model with a focus on the agriculture sector.
