Evaluation of WFP's Operations in East Timor (29 January - 23 February 2001)
WFP’s operations in East Timor were successful overall and characterised by the commitment and energy of WFP personnel. There was a high level of inter-agency cooperation under the umbrella of the OCHA Humanitarian Coordinator, with WFP as a very pro-active partner. An effective, service-oriented logistics operation was established, which was appreciated by UN sister agencies, NGOs and others, and distributions commenced in Dili and expanded across the territory without undue delay. The initial objectives of saving lives and maintaining nutrition were met and food aid helped provide social stability.
