Impact Evaluation of Food, Cash and Voucher Programme in Ecuador

In coordination with the Government of Ecuador and local governments, WFP promotes food and nutrition security, supporting trainings in nutrition, assistance to vulnerable groups with an emphasis on women, climate change adaptation, and emergency preparedness and response. In a joint effort with the International Food Policy Research Institute, WFP tested the relative costs and benefits of food rations, cash and vouchers as alternative assistance modalities in order to learn which ones are more effective in the Ecuadorian urban and peri-urban context.
