A study was conducted by WFP Nepal to assess the effectiveness of Forecast-based Anticipatory Action (FbAA) program in districts affected by the October 2022 floods. Cash transfers, relief packages, and counselling services were provided by WFP, UNFPA and UN Women. The study presents key findings.

The Monitoring, Review and Evaluation (MRE) unit of the WFP Country Office Nepal commissioned a Post-Distribution Monitoring (PDM) of the Forecast-based Anticipatory Action (FbAA) programme implemented in Kailali, Bardiya and Banke districts affected by the October 2022 floods. The AA assistance and related evidence generation were funded by UN Central Emergency Relief Fund (CERF) and German Federal Foreign Office (GFFO). As a part of the AA framework, WFP implemented cash-based transfer of Rs. 15,000 to targeted households. UN Women distributed comprehensive relief package and counselling services to a pool of targeted vulnerable women. Likewise, UNFPA distributed dignity kits and counselling services to the affected population. In this context, the PDM study assesses the effectiveness of different AA supports. This brief presents some of the key findings of the study.
