This country portfolio evaluation managed by the WFP Office of Evaluation covers the period 2009-12 and assessed: a) alignment and strategic positioning; b) drivers of strategic decisions; and c) performance and results of WFP operations. The evaluation found activities appropriate, relevant, with adequate coverage and improving strategic positioning. WFP entrepreneurial leadership is acknowledged, but operational constraints undermined performance. The innovative country office experience in social protection and education needs to be strengthened by technical operational capacity in service delivery and capacity-development. The evaluation identifies lessons for small offices in MICS contexts.
