This report synthesizes the findings of 12 WFP operation evaluations conducted between July 2013 and July 2014. The operations were implemented in diverse settings, from refugee camps to development contexts. They had a combined planned value of USD 3billion, targeted 14.3 million beneficiaries a year, and were of varying types, durations and sizes.

The evaluations found that amid some of the most difficult operating conditions in the world, WFP’s operations cohered well with national and sector policy frameworks. WFP is directly influencing and helping to formulate policy and strategy in many locations, and is increasingly engaging in joint programming.

Many of the external factors affecting results are features of WFP’s complex operating terrain, including political instability. Funding was a major constraint. Internal factors are symptomatic of an organization in transition, with progress in introducing changes, but business practices still to be oriented to new external and corporate realitiesThe lessons presented in this synthesis report aim to support WFP as it becomes increasingly fit for purpose.

The Cambodia School Feeding Impact Evaluation is part of a series of evaluations commissioned by World Food Programme‟s (WFP) Office of Evaluation. The purpose of the Cambodia Impact Evaluation is to evidence intended and unintended effects of the WFP Cambodia School Feeding Programme.

11 February 2014

The mid-term evaluation covers the Cambodia Country Programme 200202 (2011-2016). It was intended for both accountability and learning purposes 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; nutrition interventions; food/cash for assets and 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 February 2014.

Food for Assets, School Meals

The World Food Programme works with governments across Asia to design and manage large-scale, innovative programmes, focused on those who need them most. These programmes are often called ‘safety nets’ – projects designed to protect the most vulnerable at critical times, and so allow them to make the most of each new opportunity to improve their lives.

 The Annual Evaluation Report for 2010 focuses on operational issues arising from evaluations of country portfolios and operations, and impact evaluations of selected school feeding programmes.

The findings reaffirm WFP’s corporate areas of strength in responding to emergencies under the most difficult circumstances and in providing school feeding, as one of the Programme’s flagship programmes. However, impact evaluations of these programmes also showed the importance of implementing school feeding in cooperation with partners who invest in education sector improvements. Areas where largest improvements can be made relate to food-for-work, where funding often is curtailed and thus strategic objectives moved beyond reach, and nutrition where the ambiguous objectives and small size of programmes make it difficult to demonstrate results.

One of four strategic evaluations related to WFP's shift from food aid to food assistance, this evaluation assesses how Country Offices have adapted to changing needs and the factors affecting those changes. Country Offices are at the front line of translating organizational goals into action.

The evaluation found many strategic changes are being made, affecting all aspects of WFP. Experienced and dedicated staff are actively working to make the changes a success. At the same time, the change process is still at a formative stage and the foundational elements need strengthening.

This is the second of a series of evaluations of the impact of WFP school feeding.  In the past ten years WFP school feeding has achieved its aim of supporting primary education by contributing to increased enrolment, attendance and promotion and to reduced drop-out rates in Cambodia. The school feeding programme had marked effects on nutrition and value transfers to households, but the school meals programme and take-home rations affected education, nutrition and value transfer in different ways.  Certain factors limited the positive effects, however.  The Cambodia programme functioned effectively and was well organized, the evaluation presents aspects that could be reinforced to make interventions more effective and sustainable.
