Landell Mills successfully bids for the World Food Programme's Country Strategic Plan Evaluations and Corporate Emergency Evaluations
Landell Mills’ Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Division is thrilled to announce its success in bidding to deliver evaluation services for the World Food Programme (WFP) (Lot 1). Operating within the Office for Evaluation (OEV)’s annual work programme, Landell Mills will support the WFP to ensure the accountability and learning of Country Strategic Plan Evaluations (CSPEs) and Corporate Emergency Evaluations (CEEs), which focus on the assessment of results within a humanitarian context.
The WFP is a leading humanitarian organisation in the provision of food assistance in emergencies and working with communities to improve nutrition and build resilience. In 2020, the WFP was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize “for its efforts to combat hunger, for its contribution to bettering conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas and for acting as a driving force in efforts to prevent the use of hunger as weapon of war”. Evaluations will address thematic topics focal to WFP’s mission, which include capacity building, emergency preparedness, food security analysis, school-based programmes and gender equality and women’s empowerment.
Country Strategic Plan Evaluations are required in the penultimate year of implementation of any Country Strategic Plan (CSP), to contribute evidence into preparation of the next CSP in line with the CSP Policy approved in 2016. They focus on assessing WFP contributions to strategic outcomes at the country level, against the backdrop of WFP Strategic Plan and the Agenda 2030.
Corporate Emergency Evaluations focus on the assessment of results in light of the humanitarian context and principles, and the coverage, coherence and connectedness of the emergency response.
Evaluations will be aligned with sustainable development goal two, zero hunger, and will seek to address four main questions:
To what extent is WFP’s strategic position, role and specific contribution based on country priorities and people’s needs as well as WFP’s strengths?
What is the extent and quality of WFP’s specific contribution to CSP strategic outcomes?
To what extent has WFP’s used its resources efficiently in contributing to CSP outputs and strategic outcomes?
What are the factors that explain WFP performance and the extent to which it has made the strategic shift expected by the CSP?
We will be conducting evaluations across all six of the regions where WFP carry out operations, including Asia and the Pacific, Middle East, North Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, West and Central Africa, Eastern Africa, Southern Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.
