La présente étude a été entreprise pour exploiter les informations accumulées pendant plus de 6 ans dans le domaine de l’alimentation scolaire au Nord Kivu, une province connue par la fréquence des chocs liés au catastrophe naturelle, et aux guerres à répétition, avec comme conséquence le déplacement de la population conduisant à une paupérisation de cette dernière.

This country portfolio evaluation covers the period 2009-2013 of one of WFP’s largest portfolios. It assessed: a) alignment and strategic positioning; b) quality and drivers of strategic decisions; and c) performance and results of WFP operations.

The evaluation found the portfolio broadly relevant, appropriate and aligned with the needs of women and men in DRC and with government policies and priorities. But, with needs outstripping the capacity to supply them, the country office had difficulty in finding an appropriate balance among the portfolio components and did not always adapt to the dynamic environment. WFP’s decision-making was affected by financial constraints which limited the country office’s engagement in interagency coordination, strategic institutional mechanisms and identifying creative solutions to challenges. WFP’s capacity to respond to needs on time and proportionately was also weakened by the absence of a strategy adapted to the volatile context, clear operational guidelines and flexibility, with negative effects on WFP’s positioning in some areas and on donor support.

The performance and results of the portfolio were measured mainly through output-level data and showed a heavy emphasis on relief assistance throughout the evaluation period. The evaluation identifies challenges and opportunities and makes recommendations regarding the short-term humanitarian focus and the medium-term transition towards development to increase effectiveness and sustainability of WFP programmes.
