The evaluation covers the operation Mozambique PRRO 200355 Assistance to Vulnerable Groups and Disaster Affected Populations. It was intended for both accountability and learning and focuses on assessing: i) the appropriateness and coherence of the operation; ii) its results; and iii) the factors explaining the results.

The evaluation assessed the following activities: general food distribution; assistance to relief beneficiaries, vulnerable refugees and newly arrived asylum seekers; food for assets assistance; capacity development in emergency preparedness.

The evaluation, which makes a number of recommendations for the future, was managed and conducted by a consultancy firm, with fieldwork taking place in May 2014.

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.
