USAID/MSI - Program Impact Assessment of Economic Growth and Agriculture in Pakistan


Project Description: The purpose of this project was to evaluate the effectiveness of EGA interventions by USAID at empowering beneficiaries economically and socially, and promoting societal improvement. The assessment had to be designed in such a way so as to quantify whether the USAID-funded activities have changed beneficiaries’ lives, and if so in what way. MSI selected and hired the services of VTT Global (Pvt.) Ltd., to support the MSI Team in the EGA PIA study in 600 villages of Punjab, KPK and Sindh by conducting Household Surveys in the three provinces, targeting 5,400 subjects. VTT gathered socioeconomic data pertaining to three varied strata: Direct beneficiaries (1800) residing in the project areas of Sindh, Punjab and KPK; indirect beneficiaries (1800) residing in the project areas; and non-beneficiaries (1800) residing outside the project areas.
