The ‘Improving socio-economic conditions of paddy farmers in East Sri Lanka’ project aims to contribute to conflict mitigation and recovery in the north and east districts of Sri Lanka. Specific project activities included renovation of large-scale infrastructure, including rehabilitation of dams and irrigation schemes. This was supported by interventions to positively affect the paddy value-chain, such as establishing producer organisations, improving access to value-added processing, promotion of organic fertilisers and crop insurance. These full and summary reports document the findings of a quasi-experimental impact evaluation carried out in March 2013.
