Overall, WFP’s Gender Policy 2003-2007 surpassed those of many comparable organizations. Going forward, the evaluation team submitted five sets of recommendations:

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.
