An assessment of IFPRI's work in Ethiopia 1995-2010: Ideology, influence, and idiosyncrasy
AbstractThis study provides an independent external assessment of the impact of IFPRIâ€™s work in Ethiopia during 1995â€“2010. From 1995 to 2004, nearly all of IFPRIâ€™s Ethiopia work was undertaken by Washington-based research teams working on specific themes under various â€œglobal research programsâ€. In each case, Ethiopia represented one of several case studies in a larger multicountry study. The international public goods generated in this way included peer-reviewed publications; collaborative research with both domestic and international researchers; and the building of national capacity for policy research. IFPRI entered into a different kind of relationship with Ethiopia in 2004 with the establishment of the Ethiopia Strategy Support Program (ESSP). The ESSP was set up to provide direct support to the Government of Ethiopia in the design and implementation of its national agricultural development strategy and to provide well-researched advice on other agricultural and rural development policy matters.
