This is the first in a series of four strategic evaluations related to the transition from food aid to food assistance.  The evaluation analyzed WFP’s role in social protection and safety nets, which are increasingly seen as important mechanisms for promoting development.  The evaluation found that WFP is already contributing to social protection and safety nets, especially for some activities.  However, institutionalizing these approaches more broadly within WFP will require changes in WFP’s operations and efforts to build organizational and staff capacity.
