Useful indicator that takes into account macro-economic factors (inflation), market distortions created by the project (increased food process due to cash distributions), and impact of the project on different beneficiaries: increased food supply will drive down prices, benefiting landless beneficiaries and farmers who are net consumers but negatively affect poor farmers trying to enter the market economy.
