The 2014 WFP and UNHCR Joint Assessment Mission (JAM) was undertaken in both Dadaab and Kakuma refugee camps in Kenya; 23rd – 27th June 2014 for Dadaab and 30th June – 3rd July 2014 for Kakuma. Dadaab refugee complex is located within the Garissa County, North East of Kenya while Kakuma refugee camp is located within the Turkana County, North West of Kenya. The host communities in Dadaab and Kakuma are predominantly pastoralists given the harsh climatic conditions that
characterize these counties.

The evaluation covers the operation Kenya PRRO 200174 Food Assistance to Refugees (2011-2013). 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 following activities: general food distribution; blanket and targeted supplementary feeding for vulnerable groups, school meals and take-home rations, a fresh food voucher pilot, food for training, and food for assets among the host community residents.

The evaluation, which makes a number of recommendations for the future, was managed and conducted by a consultancy firm, with fieldwork taking place in January 2014.​

 The Annual Evaluation Report for 2011 focuses on lessons arising from implementation to date of WFP’s Strategic Plan 2008-2013. It covers 16 evaluations on: strategic themes in the transition from ‘food aid to food assistance’, such as partnerships and how Country Offices adapt to change; school feeding and WFP support to agricultural small holders and markets; and WFP’s strategic positioning and performance in Haiti, Kenya, Rwanda and Yemen; and others.

The findings reaffirm the relevance of the Strategic Plan to addressing the complex dimensions of hunger in a changing world. Important adaptations and innovations have been made with some promising results. However, half way through the Strategic Plan cycle, leadership and investment in the change process does not yet match requirements and future effectiveness will depend on it.
