Country Portfolio Evaluation of WFP Assistance to the Lao PDR

This report presents the findings of the evaluation of World Food Programme’s (WFP) portfolio in Laos. The evaluation was conducted in the first half of 2009 and covered the portfolio that was implemented between 2000 and 2008. The evaluation focused on three main areas of inquiry: the strategic alignment and position of WFP in the country context, the driving forces behind the choices made in putting together the portfolio as it is, and the performance and results of the portfolio. The evaluation supports the WFP Country Office in developing its country strategy and its future portfolio.
