Despite producing most of the world’s food, smallholder farmers tend to be food insecure themselves: globally, they form the majority of people living in poverty. Helping raise their incomes and improve their livelihoods holds the key to building sustainable food systems, advancing food security and achieving Zero Hunger.
Evaluations help the World Food Programme (WFP) determine whether we are doing the right thing, if we are achieving results and whether or not we could do things differently. This makes us accountable to our donors and the people we serve, and offers learning for the organization. Impact evaluation has a key role to play in this area.
The World Food Programme (WFP) offers nationally-tailored technical assistance and capacity development to strengthen individual government capacities. We respond to capacity gaps identified through an assessment process that is led by the partner government, facilitated by ourselves, and supported by other partners.
