Supporting the 2014 United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) Resolution (A/RES/69/237), the evaluation function of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is working with countries and partners across the globe on national evaluation capacity development (NECD).

In this overarching brief, WFP synthesises the results and lessons  from five NECD briefs, covering 22 initiatives across 25 countries and implemented with 49 partners:

  • Mapping evaluation capacities
  • Technical assistance to governments
  • Supporting joint and supporting country-led evaluations
  • Collaborating with VOPEs and other evaluation stakeholders  
  • Global advocacy 

The briefs, developed in collaboration with the Centre for Learning on Evaluation and Results Anglophone Africa (CLEAR-AA), were informed by interviews with WFP and partner staff, and the review of background material, NECD literature and relevant external documents.
