Cambodia School Feeding Impact Evaluation

This is the second of a series of evaluations of the impact of WFP school feeding.  In the past ten years WFP school feeding has achieved its aim of supporting primary education by contributing to increased enrolment, attendance and promotion and to reduced drop-out rates in Cambodia. The school feeding programme had marked effects on nutrition and value transfers to households, but the school meals programme and take-home rations affected education, nutrition and value transfer in different ways.  Certain factors limited the positive effects, however.  The Cambodia programme functioned effectively and was well organized, the evaluation presents aspects that could be reinforced to make interventions more effective and sustainable.
