Commissioned by WFP’s Executive Board when approving the Policy, this early evaluation assessed: the quality of the Policy itself; results so far; and the factors influencing these results/progress in implementation.
The Policy was timely, relevant and introduced some important new elements, based on sound principles. There are many positive features in implementation so far, but not as much tangible progress as might have been hoped, due to inherent weaknesses in the Policy and slow implementation of the necessary changes to WFP systems, incentives and procedures.
