Itad were contracted by the World Food Programme to evaluate the effects of the emergency response training, in particular to measure the degree to which the training contributed to staff capabilities and performance; to assess the relevance of the topics; to advise on training evaluation measures, and; to make recommendations on how to make the training more effective.
The World Food Programme (WFP) is the UN’s front line agency in the fight against global hunger. The WFP maintains an emergency roster of staff who are immediately available to be deployed in 24 – 48 hours and has embarked on a comprehensive training programme for these staff to increase the quality, efficiency and safety of its rapid response teams, involving both workshop and practical training sessions.Image © WFP food distribution at a transit site in Liberia.
