Audit of USAID/Ethiopia’s Agricultural Sector Productivity Activities

Country: Ethiopia
Fiscal Year: 2009
Agency: USAID
Audit Report Available: Yes

Ethiopia is the second most populous country in Africa. Approximately 44 percent of the population is “food insecure”, meaning that they do not have enough food to meet minimum daily needs. A USAID internal assessment was commissioned in 2003 to look at the food crisis in Ethiopia in a different way. As a result, USAID now focuses on agricultural-based economic growth to reduce poverty and food insecurity and prevent famine in Ethiopia. Programs are designed to improve economic policy; increase market-led private sector growth, trade competitiveness, and agricultural productivity; protect and increase the assets of the poor; and provide emergency assistance.

This audit will (1) determine whether USAID/Ethiopia’s agricultural sector productivity projects achieved intended results and (2) assess the projects’ impact.
