WFP has assigned Tana Copenhagen for the evaluation of the Egypt WFP Country Strategic Plan (CSP) for the period 2018 to end of 2021, including the interim-CSP from January – June 2018. The evaluation straddles a complex period in Egypt, which has included political instability as well as the consequences of COVID-19, allowing the assessment to explore key challenges faced by the CSP’s approach and implementation. The evaluation covers all WFP’s many activities in Egypt and will therefore need to reflect on national capacity strengthening, vulnerabilities to food insecurity and malnutrition, response to humanitarian needs including those of refugees and migrants, and operational capacities across the country, including the presence and engagement of a wide range of stakeholders and their respective capacities. Additionally, the evaluation will also cover WFP’s support to Egypt’s South-South cooperation. Consequently, the evaluation will need to capture its contributions to outcomes, outputs, implementation process, and operational changes including positive or negative unintended consequences. Particularly, the evaluation shall also capture WFP’s partnership strategy with the national government and the international community, and its response to the COVID-19 crisis.
Tana provides a team of 6 in this assignment. This include a senior evaluator acting as Team Leader, a social protection expert, a livelihood expert, a nutrition expert, a food security expert and a data analyst.
