Supporting M&E for WFP’s 2012 Sahel Response

Project Completed

Africa’s Sahel region has repeatedly suffered from situations of food insecurity that reach critical or emergency levels, and famine early warning systems forecasted a nutrition emergency in 2012. Prior to WFP’s response to the emergency, GroundWork supported country offices in West Africa to strengthen the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems that are used to assess the performance of programs (e.g. blanket supplementary feeding) designed to prevent the onset of malnutrition among young children and women of reproductive age.
