Improving the quality of cash transfer programmes supported by the WFP in Haiti
The World Food Programme (WFP) has been running Cash for Work programmes to tackle food insecurity in Haiti following the drought of spring 2012 and cyclones Isaac and Sandy. The main objective is to improve the food and economic security of the rural communities which have been affected by this series of shocks. The WFP is hoping to improve the quality of its operations by strengthening its monitoring and evaluation system. Groupe URD will be providing it with support in this endeavour via evaluations and training.
The programme implemented by the WFP which will involve technical support from Groupe URD aims to improve the food and economic security of rural communities which have been affected by a series of shocks (drought and cyclones Isaac and Sandy). The programme is currently being implemented in two départements – Artibonite and Sud Est.
Groupe URD’s role is to improve the monitoring system set up by the WFP for this programme by developing methodological tools and training staff in charge of collecting data in the field. Groupe URD is also be in charge of the mid-term and final evaluations of the programme.
In parallel, a retrospective study of the works carried out as part of the programme between 2010 and 2012 looks at their sustainability.
