The AKLDP is a five-year project of USAID Ethiopia which provides collaborative learning and coordination support across the Feed the Future  portfolio, leading to improved agriculture, livestock and pastoral policy and programming. The project covers Ethiopia’s three main agro-ecological zones – high and low rainfall highland mixed farming, and lowland pastoral. The project started in January 2014 and is implemented by the Feinstein International Center, Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University. The AKLDP also provides collaborative learning support on climate change adaptation, nutrition and gender-equity.

The AKLDP Team is a mix of economists and specialists in agronomy, agriculture, livestock, food security, and crop and livestock marketing. We also have many years of experience of evaluating projects in Ethiopia, and measuring impacts and attribution.
