SUMMARY 
------- 
 
1. A FIVE COUNTRY STUDY OF ONGOING WORLD FOOD PROGRAM 
OPERATIONS, UNDERTAKEN BY THE ROYAL DANISH MINISTRY OF 
FOREIGN AFFAIRS, CONCLUDES THAT: WFP HAS STRENGTHENED THE 
QUALITY OF ITS OPERATIONS; THERE IS A CLEAR ROLE FOR 
CAREFULLY TARGETED DEVELOPMENT FOOD AID INTERVENTIONS; IN- 
KIND FOOD AID SHOULD BE LIMITED TO CHRONIC FOOD-DEFICIT 
AREAS; WFP NEEDS TO DEVELOP GUIDELINES FOR EMERGENCY 
ASSISTANCE; WFP SHOULD IMPROVE ITS TECHNICAL BACKSTOPPING TO 
                       UNCLASSIFIED 
 
PAGE 03        ROME  00544  01 OF 04  051344Z 
COUNTERPARTS; AND MONITORING IS ONE AREA WHERE WFP NEEDS TO 
MAKE SUBSTANTIAL IMPROVEMENTS. END SUMMARY. 
 
---------- 
BACKGROUND 
---------- 
 
2. DENMARK IS A MAJOR DONOR TO WFP. ITS CONTRIBUTIONS IN CY 
2001 EQUALED USD 38.6 MILLION (SIXTH LARGEST). IN SUPPORT TO 
WFP'S DEVELOPMENT PORTFOLIO, DENMARK RANKED SECOND THIS PAST 
YEAR WITH A CONTRIBUTION OF USD 25.4 MILLION. 
 
3. STEMMING FROM THE RECENT ADOPTION OF A NEW STRATEGY FOR 
"ACTIVE MULTILATERALISM" BY THE DANISH PARLIAMENT, THE ROYAL 
DANISH MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS DECIDED TO TASK ITS 
EMBASSIES IN BANGLADESH, BOLIVIA, NICARAGUA, VIETNAM AND 
ZAMBIA WITH PARTICIPATION IN A MONITORING OF WFP ACTIVITIES 
INCLUDING VISITS TO FIELD SITES, INTERVIEWS WITH WFP COUNTRY 
STAFF AND OTHER RELEVANT STAKEHOLDERS, AND FILLING OUT A 
DETAILED QUESTIONNAIRE. THE REPORT NOTES THAT WFP, AT USD 
1.55 BILLION/ANNUM, IS PRESENTLY THE SECOND LARGEST PROVIDER 
OF ASSISTANCE TO DEVELOPING COUNTRIES WITHIN THE UN-SYSTEM, 
SURPASSED ONLY BY UNDP (WITH CORE AND NON-CORE RESOURCES OF 
USD 2.6 BILLION). 
 
-------------- 
MAJOR FINDINGS 
-------------- 
 
4. IN GENERAL, THE STUDY CONCLUDED THAT WFP HAS 
SUBSTANTIALLY IMPROVED THE QUALITY OF ITS DEVELOPMENT 
                       UNCLASSIFIED 
 
PAGE 04        ROME  00544  01 OF 04  051344Z 
PORTFOLIO. IT FELT THAT WFP WAS SHIFTING AWAY FROM LARGE- 
SCALE DEVELOPMENT AND INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS IMPLEMENTED BY 
MEANS OF FOOD-FOR-WORK, AND INCREASINGLY FOCUSED ON 
ACTIVITIES IN THE SOCIAL SECTOR, SUCH AS SCHOOL FEEDING OR 
VULNERABLE GROUP FEEDING - AND AT TIMES FACING LOCAL 
GOVERNMENT OPPOSITION TO THIS SHIFT IN EMPHASIS. 
 
5. IN LOOKING AT THE OVERALL WFP DEVELOPMENT PORTFOLIO 
WORLDWIDE, THE STUDY NOTED THAT WFP HAD DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS 
IN 58 COUNTRIES AND THAT MORE THAN 50 PERCENT OF THESE 
PROGRAMS WERE LESS THAN USD 3 MILLION. WHILE NOT DISCOUNTING 
SMALL COUNTRY PROGRAMS, THE STUDY SUGGESTED THAT WFP MIGHT 
QUICKLY PHASE OUT OF MIDDLE INCOME COUNTRIES (PRESENTLY UP 
TO TEN PERCENT OF THE OVERALL DEVELOPMENT PORTFOLIO) AND 
PRIORITIZE ITS ASSISTANCE TO THE POORER OF THE LOW-INCOME 
FOOD DEFICIT (LIFDC) COUNTRIES. THE EVALUATION NOTED THAT 
WFP'S DECISION TO CLOSE OUT ITS OPERATIONS IN VIETNAM IN 
LATE 2000 CONFIRMED "THE COMMITMENT OF WFP MANAGEMENT TO 
MAINTAIN A STRONG FOCUS ON COUNTRIES WHERE FOOD AID IS

APPROPRIATE." THE STUDY SUGGESTED THAT BOLIVIA BE EXAMINED 
FOR POSSIBLE PHASE OUT. 
 
6. ON WFP'S EMERGENCY OPERATIONS (EMOPS) (PRESENTLY OVER 
HALF OF ITS ANNUAL PORTFOLIO), THE STUDY COMMENTED: "IT IS 
SURPRISING TO NOTE THAT ONLY LIMITED DISCUSSION HAS TAKEN 
PLACE AT THE BOARD LEVEL ABOUT THE EMERGENCY OPERATIONS." IT 
FURTHER NOTED: "NO COMPREHENSIVE STRATEGY HAS BEEN ADOPTED 
FOR RELIEF ASSISTANCE." IN ADDITION, UNLIKE DEVELOPMENT 
PROGRAMS AND PROTRACTED RELIEF AND RECOVERY OPERATIONS

(PRROS) WHICH ARE APPROVED BY THE EXECUTIVE BOARD, EMERGENCY 
OPQTIONS (I.E., EMOPS) ARE NOT PRESENTED TO THE EXECUTIVE 
BOARD. NOTE: EMOPS ARE APPROVED BY THE WFP EXECUTIVE 
DIRECTOR; WHEN THE WFP FOOD INPUT VALUE SUPPLIED EXCEEDS USD 
3 MILLION, THE DIRECTOR GENERAL OF FAO MUST ALSO APPROVE. 
END NOTE. THE STUDY CONCLUDES: "IT WOULD SEEM DESIRABLE TO 
DRAW THE BOARD MORE INTO THE PLANNING AND EXECUTION OF 
EMOPS, PROVIDING THAT IT CAN BE DONE IN A WAY THAT DOES NOT 
HAMPER WFP'S RESPONSIBILITY TO RESPOND QUICKLY AND 
EFFECTIVELY. TO SERVE THIS PURPOSE, IT SHOULD BE POSSIBLE TO 
ELABORATE A SET OF CLEAR YET FLEXIBLE GUIDELINES FOR WFP'S 
EMERGENCY OPERATIONS FOR ADOPTION BY THE BOARD." 
 
7. ON WFP'S COUNTRY STRATEGY OUTLINE (CSO) AND COUNTRY 
PROGRAM (CP), THE STUDY SUPPORTED THE SUGGESTION OF THE 
WORKING GROUP ON GOVERNANCE (MAY 2000) THAT THE CSO AND CP 
COULD BE MERGED INTO ONE DOCUMENT. ON THE UN IN-COUNTRY 
DOCUMENTS, NAMELY THE CCA (COMMON COUNTRY ASSESSMENT) AND 
THE UNDAF (UNITED NATIONS DEVELOPMENT ASSISTANCE FRAMEWORK), 
THE CCAS "WERE CONSIDERED TO BE USEFUL DOCUMENTS, WITH VERY 
RELEVANT BACKGROUND ANALYSIS." THE STUDY WAS MUCH LESS 
SANGUINE ON THE UNDAF, COMMENTING THAT "THERE WAS STILL A 
LONG WAY TO GO BEFORE UNDAF COULD BE PRESENTED AS A TRULY 
COMMON UN RESPONSE TO THE DEVELOPMENT CHALLENGES IN THE HOST 
COUNTRY." IN A COROLLARY DOCUMENT "IDEAS TO STRENGTHEN THE 
CCA/UNDAF PROCESS," ISSUED BY THE GOVERNMENTS OF DENMARK, 
FINLAND, NORWAY AND SWEDEN (OCTOBER 2001) IT IS SUGGESTED 
THAT MANY COUNTRIES HAVE EITHER DEVELOPED OR ARE DEVELOPING 
BROAD-BASED NATIONAL POVERTY REDUCTION STRATEGIES (PRSP) AND 
THAT THE CCA/UNDAF GUIDELINES "BE ADJUSTED TO REFLECT THIS 
MAJOR AND POSITIVE CHANGE."

8. ON WFP'S DECENTRALIZATION PROCESS, THE STUDY REMINDED OF 
THE CONCERN OF THE EXTERNAL AUDITOR RELATED TO PERCEIVED 
WEAKNESSES "IN THE FINANCIAL ADMINISTRATION AT COUNTRY 
OFFICE LEVEL." 
 
--------------------------------------------- -- 
MONITORING AND CAPACITY BUILDING AT FIELD LEVEL 
--------------------------------------------- -- 
 
9. SEVERAL KEY POINTS WERE TABLED: 
 
A)   WFP MUST DEVOTE MORE ATTENTION TO CAPACITY BUILDING AND 
   INSTITUTIONAL STRENGTHENING OF COUNTERPART AGENCIES; 
B)   WFP IS FOCUSED ON OUTPUTS SUCH AS TONS OF FOOD 
   DELIVERED AND NUMBER OF PEOPLE FED RATHER THAN PROVIDING A 
   CLEAR FRAMEWORK FOR MEASURING THE DEVELOPMENTAL IMPACT OF 
   ITS ACTIVITIES; 
C)   THERE CAN BE LITTLE DOUBT THAT WFP PROGRAMS HAVE AN 
   IMPACT, BUT WFP NEEDS TO BE ABLE TO DEMONSTRATE THAT THIS 
   IMPACT IS REASONABLE COMPARED TO THE COSTS INVOLVED. 
   CONSEQUENTLY, WFP MUST INTRODUCE CLEAR AND QUANTIFIABLE 
   SUCCESS INDICATORS WHEN DESIGNING ITS PROJECTS AND PROGRAMS;

D)   IN GENERAL, THERE SEEMS TO BE A SCOPE FOR GREATER USE 
   OF THE UN TECHNICAL AGENCIES AS SUBCONTRACTORS IN 
   IMPLEMENTATION; 
E)   ON EVALUATION, "THE GENERAL AIM IS THAT COUNTRY OFFICES 
   SHOULD INCREASINGLY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL STAGES OF

10. MARKET DISRUPTION WAS NOT JUDGED TO BE A PROBLEM IN THE 
FIVE COUNTRIES SURVEYED, AS WFP'S TARGETED PROGRAMS CATER 
"TO A PART OF THE POPULATION WHO WOULD NOT OTHERWISE GET 
THEIR NUTRITIONAL REQUIREMENTS COVERED." ON DEPENDENCE, "IT 
WOULD SEEM THAT THIS IS NOT A PROBLEM CREATED BY WFP IN ITS 
DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES." "QUITE ON THE CONTRARY, AS PART OF 
THE WFP ASSISTANCE THE BENEFICIARIES ARE PROVIDED WITH A 
DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY, WHICH MIGHT ENABLE THEM TO BREAK 
FREE FORM DEPENDENCY." FINALLY, ON THE FOODSTUFFS PROVIDED, 
"THE FOOD BASKET ALSO APPEARS TO BE APPROPRIATE." "ON 
AVERAGE, WFP IS ONE OF THE UN ORGANIZATIONS WITH THE 
STRONGEST POVERTY ORIENTATION."

COMMENT 
------- 
 
13. DENMARK IS TO BE APPLAUDED FOR UNDERTAKING THE FIRST 
INDEPENDENT ASSESSMENT OF WFP SINCE THE 1994 TRIPARTITE WFP 
OVERVIEW REVIEW UNDERTAKEN BY CANADA, THE NETHERLANDS AND 
NORWAY. THE REPORT IS QUITE POSITIVE IN ITS ENDORSEMENT OF 
WFP, PARTICULARLY THE "VOTE OF CONFIDENCE" IN WFP'S 
DEVELOPMENT FOOD AID ROLE. (SEVERAL MAJOR DONORS I.E., THE 
NETHERLANDS, SWEDEN - CONTRIBUTE ZERO TO WFP'S DEVELOPMENT 
PORTFOLIO; THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION MAKES ONLY A TOKEN 
CONTRIBUTION.)  DENMARK'S COMMENTS ON GREATER EXECUTIVE 
BOARD ATTENTION TO WFP'S EMERGENCY ACTIVITIES AND THE 
IMPELLING ORGANIZATIONAL NEED FOR GREATER FOCUS ON RESULTS- 
BASED MANAGEMENT - STRONGLY MIRROR U.S. POSITIONS TAKEN AT 
THE BOARD OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS. IN SHORT, DENMARK IS 
PLEASED WITH THE PROGRESS DEMONSTRATED BY WFP ON A NUMBER OF 
FRONTS AND THEY ARE COMMITTED TO "STAYING THE COURSE" IN THE 
FORM OF CONTINUING SUBSTANTIVE FINANCIAL SUPPORT.
