The Bilateral Ethiopia Netherlands Effort for Food Income and Trade (BENEFIT) partnership is a portfolio of four programmes (ISSD Ethiopia, CASCAPE, ENTAG, SBN and REALISE), which is funded by the Government of the Kingdom of Netherlands through its Embassy in Addis Ababa. REALISE is a new BENEFIT programme so as to take the achievements of CASCAPE (Capacity building for Scaling up of evidence-based best Practices in Agricultural Production’ (CASCAPE) programme and the ‘Integrated Seed Sector Development’ (ISSD) Ethiopia programme to new areas and target groups in Ethiopia.REALISE: ‘Realising Sustainable Agricultural Livelihood Security in Ethiopia’ which is starting from January 2018.

REALISE is a three - year programme that will align with the Government of Ethiopia’s (GoE) Productive Safety Net Programme (PSNP).This GoE flagship programme currently reaches 8 million chronically food insecure Ethiopians with a wide array of instruments to smooth consumption, prevent asset depletion and promote livelihood diversification including uptake of improved agricultural practices. REALISE aims to take lessons learned from the Wageningen University & Research CASCAPE and ISSD Ethiopia programmes to PSNP target woredas.
