ATONU Project – Studentship Announcement
1 January 2017 - 1 April 2017

ATONU identified the African Chicken Genetic Gains (ACGG) Project, that is currently being implemented by the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) in Ethiopia and Tanzania,as pilot projects to integrate and assess the impact of selected nutrition-sensitive interventions (NSIs) to provide evidence for agriculture’s potential to deliver positive nutrition outcomes. In designing and implementing the NSIs, FANRPAN initially partnered with the six consortium members, and subsequently the three remaining consortium members, namely ILRI and two country implementing partners (CIPs): the Ethiopian Institute of Agricultural Research (EIAR) and the Tanzania Livestock Research Institute (TALIRI). The Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and its local Ethiopian partner, Addis Continental University, are responsible for the design and conduct of the impact evaluation for the NSIs in Ethiopia, while Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA) is responsible for impact evaluation in Tanzania.

The ACGG Project’s aim is to improve the production and productivity of chickens kept by smallholder households by introducing improved and tropically adapted genotypes in four regions of Ethiopia and five zones of Tanzania. ATONU interventions being implemented in four regions of Ethiopia, namely Amhara, Oromia, Tigray and Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region (SNNPR); and three zones of Tanzania, comprising Eastern, Central and Southern Highlands. The ATONU project activities are being embedded within the ACGG Project.
