The mid-term evaluation covers WFP’s country programme (CP) 200163 (2011-2015). 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: school feeding, nutritional support to children under five, pregnant and lactating women and HIV/TB patients, cash and food for assets, local purchase and support to local production of fortified foods as well as capacity development. The evaluation, which makes a number of recommendations for the future, was managed and conducted by a consultancy firm, with fieldwork taking place in January/February 2014.

Overall, WFP’s Gender Policy 2003-2007 surpassed those of many comparable organizations. Going forward, the evaluation team submitted five sets of recommendations:
1. take immediate steps to communicate WFP’s commitments to women and gender equality;
2. build gender mainstreaming capacities by extending and deepening training and expert guidance;
3. re-orient the roles and headquarters, country offices and regional bureaus;
4. make more funding available at the country level; and
5. complement the gender balance use of targets with building capacities and commitments among hiring managers and identify systems issues.

Apart from the grave public health concerns, the impact of HIV and AIDS upon productive members of society, and increasingly women and children, has major and long-term effects on human, social and economic development. It also has direct and indirect consequences on agricultural and production capacity, and ultimately food security.
This independent evaluation considered how effective WFP’s initiatives to provide food and nutritional support to individuals and families affected by food insecurity and HIV and AIDS have been.
Case studies from Uganda, Tanzania, Côte d’Ivoire and Burkina Faso and the report’s wide-ranging recommendations will help shape future WFP programming and policy setting.
