The Annual Evaluation Report for 2011 focuses on lessons arising from implementation to date of WFP’s Strategic Plan 2008-2013. It covers 16 evaluations on: strategic themes in the transition from ‘food aid to food assistance’, such as partnerships and how Country Offices adapt to change; school feeding and WFP support to agricultural small holders and markets; and WFP’s strategic positioning and performance in Haiti, Kenya, Rwanda and Yemen; and others.

The first in a series of four, this evaluation found positive short-term impacts - lives were saved; hunger was mediated; malnutrition rates improved; and immediate security and protection were realized - but the longer-term objectives of food security, improved livelihood opportunities and asset building were not.
Significant changes to policy and programme are needed to meet the challenges of protracted situations and to avoid chronic food insecurity.
