This Country Portfolio Evaluation covered all WFP operations in Tanzania during 2011–2014, and the Country Strategy 2011-2016. It assessed WFP's alignment and strategic positioning; the factors and quality of its strategic decision-making; and the performance and the results of the portfolio. Portfolio performance was characterised by technical competence – strong work was done by dedicated staff – but strategic drift. Assistance to refugees was generally efficient and effective, and the P4P pilot made progress towards sustainable results. But the Country Strategy's objective of "concentrated and integrated programmes and hunger solutions" was not achieved; nor was its ultimate objective of "handover to government and partners". The evaluation's recommendations are based on the need for a fundamental reappraisal and justification of WFP's role and comparative advantage in medium- and long-term food assistance, maintaining frontline emergency assistance to refugees and the provision of any supplementary feeding that no other agency is better equipped to supply.
