Summary Report Of The Evaluation Of The Impact Of Food For Assets On Livelihood Resilience In Nepal (2002–2010)
Abstract:
This evaluation assessed the outcomes and impacts of WFP’s food-for-assets programming in Nepal and was part of a series of evaluations on the impact of WFP’s cash-for-assets and food for-assets activities on livelihoods resilience. The evaluation emphasized learning by identifying lessons and changes for enhancing the impacts on resilience and aligning food-for assets programming with WFP’s recently adopted 2011 Food for Assets Guidance Manual and Disaster Risk Reduction Policy.Nepal has a population of approximately 31 million and ranks 157th of 187 countries in the United Nations Development Programme’s 2012 Human Development Index. Despite improvements over the last 15 years, poverty, food insecurity and chronic undernutrition are still significant problems, with higher prevalence in the mountains and mid- and far-western hill regions and among certain caste/ethnic groups.The evaluation found that the country office achieved significant short-term positive impacts through the rapid delivery of food aid to several million food-deficit beneficiaries during the evaluation reference period, which was characterized by conflict and post-conflict conditions and recurring natural disasters. WFP often operated in remote communities that received little alternative support. Improvements were seen in food consumption scores and other major indicators. Evidence of improved resilience was observed, with participants having lower Coping Strategy Index scores, relying less on credit to purchase food and migrating less than non-participants.

Different types of asset benefited different community members, and some activities targeted the poorest better than others. Public assets made a significant contribution to building economic and social capital during and after conflict, although benefits were not always equitably distributed.
