Evaluation of Water-to-Market Training in Armenia
AbstractThe Millennium Challenge Corporationâ€™s Compact with Armenia aimed to reduce rural poverty and improve agricultural production. A rigorous evaluation of irrigation training programs associated with the Compactâ€™s Water-to-Market Activity found the training did not substantially improve farmersâ€™ income, avoidance of poverty, or consumption. However, some positive impacts from the training involved proper pesticide use, which could possibly lead to future improvements, though small, in farmersâ€™ and consumersâ€™ health.
