Evaluation of the PRRO 10191.00 - Food Aid for Relief and Recovery in Somalia

This three-year, US$48 million protracted relief and recovery operation began in January 2003, aiming to contribute to improved food security for 2.9 million people affected by natural disasters and civil unrest that have destroyed productive resources. The evaluation found that the operation was effective in addressing humanitarian needs, but the needs far exceed the available resources. The operation has only been fully funded since the beginning of 2005, a side effect of tsunami funding for Somalia.
