The United Nations World Food Programme is the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes. Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.
As part of WFP’s Country Strategic Plan (CSP) in Mozambique for 2017-2021, one decentralized evaluation needs to be undertaken per cycle. In its CSP, WFP committed to focus this evaluation on activity 4, which is dedicated to school meal assistance. In particular, the evaluation will have to focus on WFP’s support to the national school feeding programme (Projecto de Alimentação Escolar—PRONAE). Importantly, this evaluation is also being done to meet the commitments made to the main donor for WFP’s support to PRONAE.
In this context, under the supervision of the head of M&E, the incumbent will be responsible for:
The main responsibility of the evaluation officer is to ensure the school meals evaluation is finalized in a timely and adequate manner, respecting all corporate standards and donor commitments, ensuring active and smooth engagement from Country Office and Regional Bureau.
