The mid-term evaluation covers the operation Laos CP 200242 (2012-2015). It was intended for both accountability and learning and focuses on assessing: i) the appropriateness and coherence of the operation; ii) its results; and iii) the factors explaining the results. The evaluation assessed the following activities: capacity development; disaster risk reduction and disaster risk management; prevention of acute malnutrition and nutritional support to children under two years, pregnant and lactating women; school feeding; support to households and communities to improve food security; cash and food for assets; purchase for progress; and support to local production of fortified foods. The evaluation, which makes a number of recommendations for the future, was managed and conducted by a consultancy firm, with fieldwork taking place in April/May 2014.
