Feedback form is now closed.
The Local Economy-Wide Impact Evaluation (LEWIE) shows the impact of food and cash assistance on local economies, including indirect effects to local communities. It showed how beneficial WFP cash-based assistance to refugees is, and will be applied, for the first time, to the Home-Grown School Meals Programme in Kenya. Ed Taylor will present the LEWIE, the data needs, and its relevance to WFP commitment to evidence-based programming. David will further elaborate on how this study improves our understanding of how school feeding impacts the life, income status and food security of vulnerable populations, and how we can use this knowledge in our technical assistance to governments.
