Cost-benefit Analysis of USAID Resilience in the Sahel (RISE) Project

Speeches Shim

Resilience in the Sahel Enhanced (RISE) is a multisector program aimed at increasing the resilience of vulnerable households (HHs) in the Sahel region who face climatic, conflict-induced, environmental, and economic shocks that adversely affect their livelihoods.1 The Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) focuses on two five-year USAID RISE projects in Burkina Faso and Niger: Resilience and Economic Growth in the Sahel - Enhanced Resilience (REGIS-ER) implemented by NCBA-CLUSA, and Resilience and Economic Growth in the Sahel – Accelerated Growth (REGIS-AG), implemented by CNFA. In Burkina Faso, both projects cover the Est, Centre Nord, and Sahel regions, and in Niger, the geographic areas covered include the Zinder, Maradi, and Tillaberi regions. REGIS-ER aims to boost crop and livestock production, while REGIS-AG works to strengthen the horizontal and vertical market linkages necessary for farmers to effectively produce and market their crops and increase their incomes, what the projects call the “Push & Pull” strategy.

The CBA evaluates the projects’ interventions implemented in agriculture, poultry, and small ruminant value chains (VCs).
