The evaluation covers the Somalia PRRO 200443 operation “Strengthening food and nutrition security and enhancing resilience”. 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: nutritional support to children under five, pregnant and lactating women; HIV/TB care and treatment; nutritional
assistance to internally displaced communities; general food distribution; school meals;  and cash and vouchers. 

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 2015.​

 The Somalia country portfolio evaluation principally covers WFP operations during the period 2006-2010 which represents a major part of WFP’s humanitarian efforts globally, since over this period the Somalia programme has provided humanitarian assistance to over two million people each year.

The main technical areas covered, focus on food security, nutrition, humanitarian relief and response, monitoring and evaluation, and conflict/fragile state assistance. However, the evaluation is also taking account of the recent shift in its programme strategy between 2010 to 2011. The evaluation period in Somalia presents one of the most difficult operating environments experienced since the collapse of the central government in 1991.

WFP Somalia demonstrated from 2006-2009 that it has the requisite capacity and skills set to deliver emergency food aid with efficiency by exceeding planned outputs in a very challenging environment. Since 2010 WFP has made significant progress to improve effectiveness by adopting a focus on nutrition in emergency response. Better use is being made of limited resources and the programme is now more strategically engaged with some principal humanitarian partners.
