The evaluation covers the operation Regional EMOP 200438 Assistance to Refugees and Internally Displaced Persons Affected by Insecurity in Mali, Mauritania, Burkina Faso, Niger (2012-2013). It was intended for both accountability and learning and focuses on assessing: i) the appropriateness and coherence of the operation; ii) its results; and iii) the factors explaining the results.
The evaluation assessed the nutritional support to refugees and internally displaced persons delivered throughout: general food distribution; cash and food for assets; nutritional support to children under five, pregnant and lactating women; supplementary feeding to infants aged 6-59 months; and school feeding.
The evaluation, which makes a number of recommendations for the future, was managed and conducted by a consultancy firm, with fieldwork taking place in 2014.

L’évaluation approfondie de la sécurité alimentaire dans les camps de réfugiés et auprès des populations autochtones (hôtes) a montré une prévalence élevée de l’insécurité alimentaire chez les deux catégories de ménages. En effet, l’évaluation indique que 52% et 58% respectivement des réfugiés et des autochtones sont affectées par l’insécurité alimentaire. Chez les réfugiés, l’analyse désagrégée de la prévalence à l’insécurité alimentaire à mis en évidence des disparités importantes selon le lieu de résidence (camp ou hors camps), l’origine, le sexe, le statut matrimonial et l’âge du chef de ménage.

The evaluation covers WFP’s 2009 Policy for “Promoting Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women in Addressing Food and Nutrition Challenges” and its associated Corporate Action Plan (CAP). It was intended for both accountability and learning and focuses on assessing: i) the quality of the policy; ii) its results; and iii) the factors explaining the results.
WFP’s 2009 Gender Policy suffered from both quality limitations and a fragmented institutional response to its implementation. Yet there is evidence of some potentially valuable results for gender equality from WFP’s work, albeit disconnected from the Policy itself. External factors have formed the major drivers for implementation and results. Recent improvements, notably in accountability systems and human and financial resourcing, suggest a welcome course correction. But a shift in gear is needed if WFP is to equitably realise its mission and mandate and respond to its international commitments on gender.
Four recommendations support this process calling for a clearer position and a more comprehensive approach to addressing gender within WFP policies, strategies and operations going forward.
