This first Impact Assessment was designed to assess the primary and secondary benefits associated with permagarden ownership in a refugee resettlement camp context. The team met with 453 AWR beneficiaries via interviews. The assessment found that increased food availability was the primary benefit associated with permagarden ownership, followed by increased income through the sale of fresh vegetables. As a result of increased food availability, dependence on food aid was reduced and the refugees also reported improvements in household nutrition. Permagarden ownership also resulted in a 60 percent decrease in the number of households consuming only one meal a day and a 179 percent increase in the number of households eating three meals a day.
