Niger, School Feeding in Emergencies: an evaluation

Feeding activities in Diffa region in Niger from 2015 until 2019 is part of a four-country Evaluation Series on Emergency School Feeding (ESF) commissioned by the WFP School-based Programme Unit (SBP) and made possible by a multi-year contribution by Global Affairs Canada to WFP. The series provides accountability to Canada and other donors, as well as to the wider humanitarian community. It also promotes learning at the strategic and operational levels, both globally and in country. Findings from the country evaluations feed into a synthesis of lessons learned which also draws on a global literature review, interviews with key global stakeholders, and a survey among a wider selection of WFP country offices on school feeding. The evaluation series has been timed to inform the implementation of WFPs school feeding strategy 2020-2030. ESF in Diffa started in 2015, initially through a budget revision of a regional Emergency Operation (EMOP) and were included in the transitional country strategic plan (T-CSP) in 2019. This is therefore an activity evaluation.
