WFP’s role in Ecuador includes strengthening capacities and becoming a learning office. As generating evidence and informing public policy is a stated priority of the Government of Ecuador, and a recognized role for the international cooperation, WFP works with local governments to understand the underlying causes of hunger and malnutrition and the capacities that exist to address the main determinants of malnutrition.
Recent efforts in knowledge generation include:
• On-the-job learning to allow for innovation and understanding of what works in different contexts;
• Exchanging of experiences with partners and beneficiaries to identify how WFP can improve activities on an ongoing basis; and
• Learning from rigorous studies and impact evaluations, conducted jointly with respected research institutions.

The 2013 Ecuador Annual Report highlights lessons and learning, but also results as WFP works with the Government of Ecuador to make malnutrition a visible issue at the top of public policy agendas.

In Ecuador, WFP supports national efforts to promote food and nutrition security, and the government’s food sovereignty priorities. WFP prioritizes participatory collaboration with governments, communities, the private sector and others who share the aim to improve food and nutrition security for all.
The Government of Ecuador endorsed WFP’s strategy for 2012–2016, supporting a collaborative process involving representatives of 15 ministries. The strategy was developed to closely align WFP efforts in support of the priorities outlined in the government’s National Development Plan, the 2008 Constitution, the working framework of the United Nations (UNDAF), and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
