The evaluation covers the PRRO Zimbabwe operation 200453 Responding to Humanitarian Needs and Strengthening Resilience to Food Insecurity. 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: support to households and communities to improve food security, resilience and disaster recovery; nutritional support to HIV and TB patients, children under five, pregnant and lactating women; food and cash transfers.

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

 The Zimbabwe portfolio evaluation covers WFP operations and analytical work between 2006 and 2010.

During this period WFP first provided a massive food aid response, then in 2009 appropriately adjusted its activities to a more flexible market-driven approach.  The evaluation’s overall assessment of the portfolio, in a turbulent environment, is positive.  Some specific issues however need to be addressed such as the limited results of the nutrition support to ART programme.
