The Pakistan Country Programme represented the first attempt by WFP to reformulate its operations into a programme. It was approved, partly retroactively, in October 1996. Existing projects were packaged together to form the 1994–1998 Country Programme, with an emphasis more on synchronizing with other United Nations operations than on developing a new focused Country Programme. Consequently, it was designed without the benefit of clear indicators for measuring results. The conclusions of this evaluation should be seen in this light.
