The United Nations World Food Programme is the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes. Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.
WFP’s Regional Bureau for the Middle East, Northern Africa, and Eastern Europe (RBC), based in Cairo, Egypt, provides strategic guidance, policy/technical support, and direction to WFP operations and activities in 15 countries: Algeria, Armenia, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Moldova, State of Palestine, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, and Yemen. These country offices (COs) in 2023, aim to assist roughly one-quarter of all of WFP’s beneficiaries (approx. 39.4 million) in some of the most critical humanitarian emergencies of our time. RBC is also active in the ‘Changing Lives’ side of WFP’s mandate, helping national governments and local communities improve nutrition, livelihoods, school feeding, social protection, climate, and disaster risk reduction, and other programmes that build resilience and support development.

As a major part of WFP’s accountability framework, evaluations assess the performance and results of WFP’s policies, strategies, programmes, and activities for accountability and learning to inform future direction. The Evaluation Policy (2022) aims to strengthen WFP’s contribution to ending global hunger by embedding evaluation into the core of its working culture, ensuring evidence-based decision-making in all its work. WFP’s evaluation function model combines centralized evaluation with demand-led decentralized evaluation, in line with Strategic Plan commitments and related organizational strengthening initiatives. Since 2016, the organization has invested substantial resources in the development of evaluation capacity at the country and regional levels. Within this context, RBC has established a Regional Evaluation Unit and within the framework of the corporate evaluation policy, developed a Regional Evaluation Strategy which is currently being updated to take us through to 2030.
