WFP assists African governments and communities to implement comprehensive, country-led, programmes to tackle hunger the world’s greatest solvable problem. In 2012, out of a total US$4.2 billion expenditure, two thirds (US$2.7 billion) was allocated to Africa. WFP is the world’s biggest buyer of food for humanitarian operations and it is the largest single purchaser of food assistance in Africa, but we do not work alone. This edition of WFP in Africa highlights our partnerships throughout the continent, illustrating the importance of working together to reach shared goals and objectives.

The Annual Evaluation Report for 2011 focuses on lessons arising from implementation to date of WFP’s Strategic Plan 2008-2013. It covers 16 evaluations on: strategic themes in the transition from ‘food aid to food assistance’, such as partnerships and how Country Offices adapt to change; school feeding and WFP support to agricultural small holders and markets; and WFP’s strategic positioning and performance in Haiti, Kenya, Rwanda and Yemen; and others.

From 2001 to 2010, WFP has assisted Rwanda with a portfolio comprising 5 operations worth US$207 million with the aims to save lives, invest in disaster preparedness, protect and rebuild livelihoods, reduce malnutrition, improve educational outcomes and develop government capacities.
The evaluation found that WFP’s portfolio was closely aligned with the Government of Rwanda’s and people’s needs and that WFP made good strategic choices. WFP’s participation in Delivering as One theme groups permitted greater synergies with UN partners. WFP demonstrated its comparative advantage in protracted relief, land and infrastructure rehabilitation, school feeding and nutrition. Overall food assistance was efficiently and effectively delivered.
