The mid-term evaluation covers the Zambia Country Programme 200157 operation (2011-2015). 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: school feeding; purchase for progress and support to local production; support to patients with HIV/AIDS, children under five, and pregnant and lactating women to improve food security; support to improve resilience and disaster recovery; and 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 May and June 2014.

WFP Zambia Stream lining Nutrition

The Annual Evaluation Report for 2010 focuses on operational issues arising from evaluations of country portfolios and operations, and impact evaluations of selected school feeding programmes.
The findings reaffirm WFP’s corporate areas of strength in responding to emergencies under the most difficult circumstances and in providing school feeding, as one of the Programme’s flagship programmes. However, impact evaluations of these programmes also showed the importance of implementing school feeding in cooperation with partners who invest in education sector improvements. Areas where largest improvements can be made relate to food-for-work, where funding often is curtailed and thus strategic objectives moved beyond reach, and nutrition where the ambiguous objectives and small size of programmes make it difficult to demonstrate results.

This strategic evaluation analysed the role of WFP in ending long-term hunger. Three activities were identified to contribute to that goal: MCHN,SF and FFW/A.
Based on overall evaluation findings, the team concluded that long-term hunger cannot be tackled in isolation. This conclusion led to one of the six recommendations; WFP should approach hunger holistically, integrating short-term and long-term hunger solutions. The other five recommendations are related to each of the five evaluation questions, common to all four strategic evaluations in this series.
