This report presents a review of the humanitarian and development effectiveness of the World Food Programme (WFP). WFP is both a humanitarian and development United Nations agency. It is the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. In emergencies, it distributes food where it is needed to save the lives of victims of war, civil conflict and natural disasters. After the cause of the emergency passes, it focuses on development, using food to help communities rebuild their lives.


The purpose of this review is to provide an independent, evidence-based assessment of the humanitarian and development effectiveness of WFP. The review was based on the content of 52 WFP evaluations published between 2006 and 2011.
