Mid-Term Evaluation of the Lesotho Country Programme (2000-2002)
The PRRO’s recovery strategy assumed an orderly and quick transition from relief distribution to increased support for recovery-based programming. This has not proven to be realistic. With an unfavourable operating environment, and limited resources, the PRRO has had to continue prioritizing relief, at the expense of its recovery objectives. Increased earmarking of contributions for specific countries has also tended to prevent reallocations in favour of recovery, even when relief stocks cannot be distributed.
