The Role and Application of Economic Analysis in WFP

The purpose of this paper is to present a framework for the role and use of economic analysis in WFP.  It will be used to focus WFP’s growing capacity in this area and to guide further development. This paper marks a point of consolidation and reflection in the process to integrate economic analysis more fully into WFP’s work. Partnerships will be fundamental to this process: WFP will work with national partners and other agencies to undertake economic analysis in areas relevant to hunger. WFP/EB.A/2006/5-C
