Evaluation of a relief and reintegration programme by WFP in Côte d’Ivoire
May-October 2017

In June 2017, Groupe URD has been in Côte d’Ivoire to evaluate the WFP’s IPSR (Protracted Relief and Recovery) programme which aims to save lives and livelihoods and promote the transition for repatriated and other vulnerable populations in returnee zones in western Côte d’Ivoire. This evaluation took place in the changing context from emergency relief to recovery and development. More globally, it aimed to provide the World Food Programme (WFP) with lessons about reinforcing the resilience of refugee populations.

This evaluation took place as the country was returning to peace and stability thus favouring the return and reintegration of refugees who fled to neighbouring countries during the post-electoral crisis of 2010. It covered the period between January 2013 and March 2017 and evaluated the impact of the IPSR programme on the target population.

The IPSR was designed in response to the effects of the post-electoral crisis that led to mass internal and external displacement. It aimed to provide assistance and contribute to the recovery of more than 254 000 people in Côte d’Ivoire, including repatriated people, the displaced and other vulnerable groups. In particular, it aimed to strengthen the livelihoods and food and nutritional security of communities and families affected by the crisis.
