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.

From the early 1990s, there was worrying evidence of increasing prevalence and incidence of undernutrition in Burkina Faso.
