Studies and reports

The project’s Pró-Semiárido component has been concluded, complying with all the tasks established in the Terms of Reference, from sampling and analytical design, the evaluation of collected data, to the analysis of the baseline impact. The Dom Helder Câmara component was interrupted due to changes in administration; finished tasks include designing and drawing the sample units for the data collection Institution. The remaining tasks were replaced by a presentation of the results of baseline studies carried out in other states (Ceará, Piauí and Paraíba) and funded by IFAD.
