This report synthesizes the findings of 12 WFP operation evaluations conducted between July 2013 and July 2014. The operations were implemented in diverse settings, from refugee camps to development contexts. They had a combined planned value of USD 3billion, targeted 14.3 million beneficiaries a year, and were of varying types, durations and sizes.

The evaluations found that amid some of the most difficult operating conditions in the world, WFP’s operations cohered well with national and sector policy frameworks. WFP is directly influencing and helping to formulate policy and strategy in many locations, and is increasingly engaging in joint programming.

Many of the external factors affecting results are features of WFP’s complex operating terrain, including political instability. Funding was a major constraint. Internal factors are symptomatic of an organization in transition, with progress in introducing changes, but business practices still to be oriented to new external and corporate realitiesThe lessons presented in this synthesis report aim to support WFP as it becomes increasingly fit for purpose.

The evaluation covers the Tajikistan PRRO 200122 “Restoring Sustainable Livelihoods for Food-Insecure People”. It was intended for both accountability and learning purposes 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: Vulnerable Group Feeding, Food for Assets, Emergency Response, Targeted Supplementary Feeding, Blanket Supplementary Feeding, Support to HIV Patients, a cash pilot project to test an alternative modality for delivering assistance to food-insecure families as well as capacity development. 

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

Commissioned by WFP’s Executive Board when approving the Policy, this early evaluation assessed: the quality of the Policy itself; results so far; and the factors influencing these results/progress in implementation.

The Policy was timely, relevant and introduced some important new elements, based on sound principles. There are many positive features in implementation so far, but not as much tangible progress as might have been hoped, due to inherent weaknesses in the Policy and slow implementation of the necessary changes to WFP systems, incentives and procedures.
