Description of project
The objective of the evaluation was to provide evidence and inspiration for future strategies to improve the contribution of food assistance to increased self-reliance and potentially to durable solutions for both refugees and host populations in protracted Rohingya refugee situations in Bangladesh.
The evaluation was conducted to serve both accountability and learning purposes by:
• Assessing outcomes and impact of food assistance interventions within the protracted Rohingya refugee settlements of Bangladesh, and;
• Identifying changes needed to improve the food assistance interventions such that they would contribute to the attainment of self-reliance and or durable solutions for the Rohingya refugee populations
The evaluation consisted of three phases:
1. Inception phase – Normative and field experience desk reviews, Inception Report for field phase, and pilot mission
2. Evaluation phase – Quantitative and qualitative research in 8 refugee camps
