This is the first report that analyses the historical transition of the Namibian School Feeding Programme from 1991 when the programme was launched by the World Food Programme through the period when the Government of Namibia took full ownership of the programme in 1996 until now. The report represents the first step in the process of strengthening the evidence base on school feeding in Namibia and is intended to inform on the progressive transfer of responsibilities and the process the school feeding programme has undergone to be what it is today.
