The Sida supported National Agriculture and Livestock Extension Programme (NALEP) Phase I started in July 2000 originally as a three year program, which was later extended to 5 years, covering 43 districts in 5 provinces and ending in June 2005. When NALEP II was brought up for a decision in Sida, it was concluded that there was not enough information on the impact of project interventions and therefore that an impact assessment should be carried out before a long-term agreement would be signed for the programme.

The purpose of the impact assessment of Phase I was to establish to what extent the project has contributed towards the achievements of its goals of providing and facilitating pluralistic and efficient extension services for increased production, food security, higher incomes and improved environment.
