linking research and action: strengthening food assistance and food policy research -- ifpri/wfp brief

The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) evaluated the FFE programme based on surveys of households and schools conducted in 2000. In 2003, IFPRI resurveyed the same households and schools to assess the impacts of the PES and compare them with those of the FFE. Econometric models captured the impacts of FFE and PES on enrollment and food consumption, isolating the effects of income and other factors." -- From text
