Dear en-net, There are so many arguments on the merits of food aid-short and long term. This appears rather a new topic in the forum. May some one link me to a web or provide me with literature or a sample questionnare assessing the impact of food aid on agricultural productivity and labour supply. I have just developed a questionnaire to evaluate the impact of food aid on a post conflict community but it is rather difficult for me to 're-invent the wheel' especially given that some one must have developed a template before (both for Qualitative and Quantitative assessment). Thankyou, Samuel

Dear Samuel Your question proved a bit of a challenge for us. Our apologies for the delay in responding. Despite the extensive literature on the impact of food aid developed over the last 2-3 decades, I have not been able to locate a questionnaire that directly addresses your needs. However, I have put together the following list of references organized by publisher/institution. Some include questionnaires but I'm afraid these do not directly address your topic. Nevertheless, I hope that the range of factors having a bearing upon the impact of food aid will be of help to you in compiling your own questionnaire. If you have trouble with the links or would like to correspond further off-line please feel free to contact me directly on Good luck!
