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.

Focus on Women, Nutrition, School Meals
14 December 2006

In Indonesia, a low-income food-deficit country, more than 100 million people live near or below the poverty line. There are numerous slums; many rural areas lack basic infrastructure; high levels of chronic malnutrition persist. WFP’s realistic appraisal of where its impact will be greatest led to an increasing focus on nutritional interventions, especially for mothers and children, combined with innovative approaches to influencing Government policy through sophisticated and robust food security and nutrition mapping. WFP also plays a central role in anticipating and responding to natural disasters.
