Final Evaluation, September 2008-February 2011
The Global Food Crisis Response (GFCR) project in Western Nepal began in September 2008 and continued through February 2011. The project took a multi-pronged approach to alleviating the strain put on households by the increase in global food prices.
The overall goal of GFCR Nepal was to improve immediate and medium-term food security, while laying the groundwork for long-term solutions. To attain this goal, Mercy Corps Nepal implemented both short-term interventions (Cash for Work) and longer-term interventions (Agricultural Value Chain Enhancement, Access to Credit) to lay the groundwork for more sustainable resilience.
