Evaluation of Water-to-Market Training in Armenia
The Millennium Challenge Corporation’s Compact with Armenia aimed to reduce rural poverty and improve agricultural production. A rigorous evaluation of irrigation training programs associated with the Compact’s Water-to-Market Activity found the training did not substantially improve farmers’ 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 farmers’ and consumers’ health.
