Feed the Future initiative in Malawi is committed to improving food security and nutrition in farming households while reducing rural poverty through an agriculture-led, integrated economic growth, nutrition, and natural resource management strategy. The goal of the impact evaluation is to determine whether integrating nutrition interventions alongside agricultural value chain interventions will contribute to a greater reduction in malnutrition among children under 3 years of age, compared to nutrition improvements anticipated from stand-alone value chain activities. The main objectives are to enable USAID missions to meet the performance monitoring requirements of Feed the Future and maximize the use and benefits of data collected; provide high-quality empirical evidence to inform program design and investment decisions that will promote sustainable food security; ensure timely availability of highquality data for use in monitoring performance and evaluating impacts of the Feed the Future initiative; and facilitate accountability and learning about which Feed the Future interventions work best, under what conditions, and at what cost.

This dataset describes the behavior of the mothers during pregnancy as determined in the Baseline Study of Food for Peace Title II Development Food Assistance Program in the Maradi and Zinder regions in Niger. It has 19 columns and 2,262 rows. In fiscal year 2012, USAID's Office of Food for Peace (FFP) awarded funding to private voluntary organizations (PVOs) to design and implement a multi-year Title II development food assistance program in Niger. The main purpose of the Title II program is to improve long-term food security of chronically food insecure population in the target regions. FFP contracted a firm, ICF International to conduct a baseline study in targeted areas of the country prior to the start of the new program. The purpose of the study was to assess the current status of key indicators, have a better understanding of prevailing conditions and perceptions of the population in the implementation areas, and serve as a point of comparison for future final evaluations. Results would also be used to further refine program targeting and, where possible, to understand the relationship between variables to inform program design. The study was conducted in 2013, while FFP expects to conduct final evaluations as close as possible to the end of the program five years later.
