Impact Evaluations


Impact Evaluations (IE) develop a better understanding of what difference WFP programmes make in people's lives.
 
IEs focus on one programme activity at a time, for instance school feeding, in one country, to allow the evaluation team enough time and resources to collect data through a mix of methods.
 
IEs use techniques like surveys, focus group discussions and participatory methods, as well as document review (secondary data) and discussions with key informants.  
 
 
In 2010-2011, OEV will be evaluating the impact of school feeding in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Cote d’Ivoire and the Gambia. During 2011, OEV will also begin a series on the contribution of food distribution to durable solutions in protracted refugee situations
