WFP-UNHCR Joint Evaluation of the Pilot Food Distribution Projects

WFP and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees have worked together for many years to provide humanitarian assistance for refugees and displaced people. This collaboration was strengthened by a revised memorandum of understanding signed in July 2002, under which the agencies agreed that WFP would take over, on a pilot basis and at its own expense, responsibility for the food distribution programme in Kenya, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, Uganda and Zambia. The pilot projects were to be evaluated after one year of implementation.
