The Impacts of Postharvest Storage Innovations on Food Security and Welfare in Ethiopia

Postharvest loss exacerbates the food insecurity and welfare loss of farming households in developing countries. This paper analyzes the impact of improved storage technologies on food and nutrition security and welfare using nationally representative data from Ethiopia. The study finds that the use of improved storage technologies increases dietary diversity and reduces child malnutrition and self-reported food insecurity and suggests that improved storage technologies can enhance food and nutrition security for a growing population.
