Madagascar PRRO 200735: A mid-term operation evaluation

The evaluation covers the Madagascar Protracted Relief and Recovery Operation 200735 "Response to food security and nutrition needs of population affected by natural disasters, and resilience building of food insecure communities in south-western, southern and south-eastern regions of Madagascar". It was intended for both accountability and learning and focuses on assessing: i) the appropriateness and coherence of the operation; ii) its results; and iii) the factors explaining the results.

The evaluation assessed the following activities: 1) Capacity building in Disaster Risk Management (DRM); 2) General Food Distribution (GFD) and Food Assistance for Assets (FFA) in response to emergencies; 3) Moderate Acute Malnutrition (MAM) treatment; 4) FFA for resilience building and 5) prevention of malnutrition through a Blanket Supplementary Feeding Program (BSFP)

The evaluation, which makes a number of recommendations for the future, was managed and conducted by a consultancy firm, with fieldwork taking place in October 2016.
