The WFP's People Strategy, which was first approved in 2014, stands as the organization's "blueprint" for reinforcing, retaining and recruitment of its workforce. At the heart of this is the aim of creating a more people-centred WFP which focuses on the welfare and development of its employees with the ultimate aim of better serving the organization’s beneficiaries.

As part of the evaluation of the People Strategy, a team of evaluators, led by Universalia and comprised of both Universalia consultants and external associates, assessed the quality and results of the Strategy, as well as factors affecting achievement of results.

The evaluation undertook field missions to a diverse set of WFP country offices and regional bureaux in Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America, conducting key informant interviews and focus groups with a wide range of both international and national WFP staff. Further to this, the evaluation also engaged in a retrospective construction of the People Strategy’s Theory of Change, and the conducting of four case-studies to focus data collection and analysis.

The Executive Summary is available in English, French, Spanish and Arabic on WFP’s website. 

The Final Report is also available online in English.
