It covers WFP activities implemented between 2018 and mid-2021 including WFP’s strategic positioning, its effectiveness in contributing to strategic outcomes, the efficiency of CSP implementation and factors explaining WFP’s performance.
The evaluation concluded that:
- WFP remained a key humanitarian actor in the country, and the CSP framework facilitated its strategic positioning in social protection and resilience, although visibility at Government level is still limited.
- In refugee assistance, WFP relied on the triple nexus approach developed with partners to combine humanitarian efforts with sustainable solutions, but the latter are constrained by the agro-ecological and socio-economic context.
- Within the integrated resilience package, full synergy between the different activities is yet to be achieved, as well as ownership of the approach at the national level.
- The consideration of cross-cutting issues has progressed, with room for further improvements on gender, environment and accountability to affected populations.
- WFP has demonstrated a strong capacity for adaptation and flexibility, including during the COVID-19 crisis.
- Success factors included internal reorganizations, increased funding levels, and overall quality of monitoring, although difficulties persist with measuring effects of longer-terms approaches.
