The report synthesizes the main findings from mixed-method evaluations in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Nepal, Senegal and Uganda that assessed the impact of WFP’s food-for-assets activities and identified lessons on how to improve the orientation of food for assets towards achieving livelihoods resilience objectives. The evaluations covered a period of organizational change. In 2011, WFP introduced new policies and guidance documents related to food for assets, including a new disaster risk reduction and management policy and the Food For Assets Guidance Manual. The evaluations assessed activities carried out in 2002–2011, which were designed and implemented under different guidance and objectives. While focusing on assessing the medium and longer term effects and sustainability of these past efforts, evaluations also provided lessons on how food-for-assets activities could be better aligned with new policy and guidance. The evaluations found that in the short term, WFP was effective in providing food and employment to people in underserved communities during periods of civil unrest and natural disaster, and built useful assets in the process. The overall impacts seen in many areas included those related to resilience: livelihoods, income-generating opportunities, land productivity,
social cohesion and gender dynamics. However, improvements in food security were limited. Results were achieved in the face of contextual constraints, including disruption of social fabric by conflict and recurrent disasters, and often with incomplete funding and resources, including technical assistance. Asset interventions reached people in need, most of whom were in isolated communities that received little assistance. Women benefited significantly from food-for-assets activities through employment and access to resources and the creation of assets targeted to women and subsequently falling under their
control. Improvements were seen in women’s position in the community and households, including in budget management, with the increased social connectivity and freedom of movement that resulted from food-for-assets activities affecting women’s roles more broadly in the household and society.
These findings confirm that food for assets is an appropriate mechanism for contributing to the delivery of WFP’s 2011 corporate policy on disaster risk reduction and management and the Strategic Plan (2014–2017) with its focus on resilience.
