This paper describes the methodology that will be utilized for the household level analysis of economic and productive impacts under the From Protection to Production (PtoP) Project. It reviews the conceptual framework underlying the analysis, then delves into the analytical framework, with detailed sections on the methods which may be used in the different contexts of each impact evaluation: difference in difference estimators, propensity score matching and regression discontinuity design. This is followed by a discussion of the specific evaluation design of each of the seven countries (Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe) participating in the project.
