The study sought to assess the impact of FADAMA III programme on the livelihood of women farmers in Anambra State. The study focused mainly on the activities of FADAMA III programme that supported women farmers relative to income, savings, household expenditure of women farmers, farm asset and non-farm asset acquisition which reflects the livelihood of women farmers. A total of 363 women farmers were selected for the study from a population size of 3880 FADAMA users in Anambra State using Taro Yamene Formula ensuring proper spread to all the agricultural zones in Anambra State. Data were collected through the use of structured and pre-tested questionnaire and analyzed through the use of Descriptive and inferential statistical tools. The Double-Difference (DD) Estimator was used to compare changes in outcome measures between Fadama Users Groups (FUGs) and Non Fadama Users Group. The difference in mean shows that the mean income before the programme was N189, 412.43 and N360, 465.68 after the programme. The mean savings before and after the programme was also found to be N37, 326.04, and N62, 805.33 respectively. Equally; the mean annual expenditure before and after the programme was found to be N49, 978.70, and N131, 607.40 respectively. The study shows that the FADAMA III programme has a strong positive effect on the livelihood of women farmers in Anambra State. It is recommended that provision of services such as communication, empowerment training on basic agricultural business, monitoring, should be promoted and continued by the management of FADAMA III since these are known to have positive effect on women’s livelihood capabilities.
