7 March 2014

The evaluation covers the Zimbabwe PRRO 200453 “Responding to Humanitarian Needs and Strengthening Resilience to Food Insecurity”. 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: Seasonal unconditional targeted assistance, food and cash for assets, treatment of moderate acute malnutrition (MAM) among pregnant and lactating women, ART/TB patients and children 6-59 months, support to households hosting malnourished HIV/TB clients and a pilot school feeding project.

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 2014.

 The Zimbabwe portfolio evaluation covers WFP operations and analytical work between 2006 and 2010.

During this period WFP first provided a massive food aid response, then in 2009 appropriately adjusted its activities to a more flexible market-driven approach.  The evaluation’s overall assessment of the portfolio, in a turbulent environment, is positive.  Some specific issues however need to be addressed such as the limited results of the nutrition support to ART programme.
