Thematic evaluation of Recurring Challenges in the Provision of Food Assistance in Complex Emergencies - The Problems and Dilemmas faced by WFP and its Partners

This report describes the ethical dilemmas as well as operational challenges faced in getting food assistance to those who need it in complex (i.e. conflict) emergencies. It highlights the need to combine operational capabilities — the ability to do things—with careful, continuous analysis and political sensitivity — the ability to determine what best to do, how to do it, what to avoid, how to adapt in rapidly changing circumstances and when to stop.
