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.​

 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.

WFP responded well to the 2010 crisis in Niger, making the right strategic choices about its response, managing appropriately the deployment and engagement of headwarters, regional bureau and country office staff, and working at a high level of technical implementation. Management, logistics and procurement made significant achievements.

However, targeting remained weak, associated with significant gaps in monitoring and capturing data. As a result, the outcomes of the EMOP are difficult to measure.
