Field visit to Mali to study the WFP’s emergency response in 2018

From January to March 2019, Groupe URD will be conducting a lesson learning study on the World Food Programme’s emergency response in Mali in 2018. The aim will be to study the assistance provided as part of the Sahel Shock Response in order to gather lessons and good practices and reinforce future activities and responses. The field visit will take place in February and will include interviews and workshops in Bamako.

The overall objective of this study is to gather lessons and good practices from the ‘Sahel Shock Response’ in 2018. More broadly, the aim is to reinforce future responses and contribute to improving the implementation of crisis mitigation activities in WFP operations and the National Response Plan. An overall analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the operation will be carried out, with a particular focus on scaling up, coordination and the choice of cash transfer methods.

The study is being carried out for the WFP’s Country Office in Mali and the sub-offices, for the state implementing partners, and particularly those directly involved in the National Response Plan, as well as the WFP’s Regional Bureau for West Africa. It will involve a field visit to Mali to collect data, carry out interviews and run a lesson-sharing workshop in Bamako.

The methodology combines a literature review, individual and group interviews, the analysis of online questionnaires and face-to-face exchanges with beneficiaries - if the security conditions allow - with continual triangulation of the information collected.
