Achieving sustainable Striga control for poor farmers in Africa: Monitoring, Learning and Evaluation Status Review
Integrated Striga Management Project aims to improve the livelihoods of over 25 million small-holder farmers in northern Nigeria and western Kenya through reducing the threat of Striga, a parasitic weed of maize and cowpea. ALINe and International Institute of Tropical Agriculture authored the Monitoring, Learning and Evaluation review to systematically review the status of the project as captured in the project documentation, to highlight the gaps in terms of information and progress with implementation, and create an opportunity for project partners to engage in a self-evaluation and learning process using the material provided. This review will serve as the basis for further development of the MLE framework for the project.
