USAID-CIAFS leveraged successful innovations and best practices to address food security needs, identify constraints to growth, and build the capacity of key stakeholders in Ethiopia's agriculture sector. The project worked with key agents of change to raise awareness of international best practices and promote knowledge of policy alternatives to empower public and private stakeholders to push for positive policy changes. The project also provided other Feed the Future projects in Ethiopia with coordination, analysis, and monitoring and evaluation support.
USAID-ATEP increased productivity, sales, incomes, and employment in horticulture; coffee; hides, skins and leather; and oilseeds and pulses. The program addressed cross-cutting issues in health, particularly HIV/AIDS and malaria awareness and prevention; policy and organizational development; gender mainstreaming; and environmental management. ATEP reached more than 180,000 smallholders through alliances with public and private partners and a strong focus on improved agricultural practices. The program leveraged more than $14.7 million in new investment.
