Highlights

  • Heavy rainfall in South Sudan and insecurity along the transport routes, has resulted in a decrease in the arrival rates, especially into Uganda and Kenya.
  • Relocation from Leitchuor and Nip-Nip camps in Ethiopia is underway as the Government continues to identify land for resettlement of new arrivals.
  • WFP requires US$111 million for the next six months to meet the needs of new arrivals from South Sudan and existing refugees in all four countries.
  • Since mid-December, more than 450,000 South Sudanese have arrived in Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia and Sudan.
WFP Publication

Highlights

  • WFP urgently requires US$90 million for the next six months (July-December) to meet the needs of all its programmes in Kenya based on current assessed needs.
  • Funding is also required to ensure timely re-sponse in case of increasing emergency needs and to expand resilience-building activities.
  • Food and nutrition security in the arid and semi-arid lands is precarious after two poor rainfall seasons. Recent nutrition surveys indi-cate a deteriorating situation in Baringo, Man-dera, Marsabit, Samburu, Turkana and Wajir.
  • WFP’s new Country programme for July 2014-June 2018 emphasizes capacity building of national institutions and county governments to reduce risks and enable them (together with vulnerable communities) to meet their own food and nutrition needs.

The United States Department of Agriculture assessed the feasibility of implementing a locally produced school feeding (LPSF) program to increase small-scale farmers’ agricultural productivity and marketing capacity, and thus improve incomes, in four Sub-Saharan African countries. Research was conducted in Mali, Ghana, Kenya, and Rwanda. This paper details the results.

WFP Publication, Evaluation
12 May 2014

This evaluation covers a ten-year period of WFP-assisted school feeding in Kenya. In the global context of WFP, Kenya is one of the largest and most long-standing programmes of school feeding.The three school feeding activities under review here are the Country Programme 1999-2003 (CP 10009), Country Programme 2004-2008 (CP 10264), and the school feeding components of Emergency Operation (EMOP) activities during 2004-07. The WFP-assisted school meals target all schools in the arid lands, the most vulnerable schools in semi-arid lands, and the informal urban slums in Nairobi and Mombassa.
