Project: Madagascar Conservation Study

Under Learning, Evaluation and Analysis Project (LEAP III) contract with Integra Government Services LLC, Limestone staff are carrying out a study of USAID Madagascar’s Mikajy Activity. The Mikajy Activity aims to foster sustainable and inclusive economic growth by linking biodiversity conservation and improved natural resource management with sustainable livelihood development. The Activity is being implemented over 5 years beginning in 2018.

To date, Limestone staff have completed a desk review of the context in which the Mikajy Activity is being implemented, and participated in a two-week field visit to collect data from key stakeholders. The team is currently developing cost-benefit models for the value chains USAID is supporting, as well as cost-effectiveness analysis of a number of Protected Area management systems. The team will submit an evaluation report to USAID early in 2020.
