Synthesis of impact evaluations of the World Food Programme’s nutrition interventions in humanitarian settings in the Sahel - Working Paper 31, March 2018


SummaryAcute malnutrition in the Sahel affects an estimated six million children under five years, of whom about 1.4 million require treatment for severe acute malnutrition.

In addition to examining the impacts of various components of World Food Programme (WFP) programming on core outcomes, the series of impact evaluations on moderate acute malnutrition programming synthesised in this report contribute evidence on the value of the interrelationship between programmes for preventing and programmes for treating moderate acute malnutrition in emergency and post-emergency contexts.
