General for Sidas humanitarian contributions through WFP during 2015-2017


A - Introduction The year 2017 will be remembered as one of transition and learning as WFP launched the new Strategic Plan (2017-2021) which aligns WFP’s work with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and is monitored through the new Corporate Results Framework (2017-2021). The year 2017 saw 12 countries piloting the implementation of the Country Strategic Plans (CSP) and country portfolio budget structure, and 16 CSPs and Interim-CSPs (ICSP) as well as 37 Transitional-ICSPs being developed and approved before year-end. Preparation of the national zero hunger strategic reviews and CSPs attracted a wide range of stakeholders during the consultation processes, providing an opportunity for WFP country offices to take stock of their engagement with diverse partners while establishing a common understanding of the food security and nutrition challenges in each country. Altogether, WFP management performance shows a reasonable degree of effectiveness, efficiency and economy. Moreover, the financial performance of the organization suggests that WFP improved the cost efficiency of its programme delivery: in 2017, WFP provided greater programmatic outputs with relatively small increases in staff and other costs. The key performance indicators show overall positive management performance throughout WFP: country offices achieved on average 72 percent of management performance targets, related to the implementation of audit and evaluation recommendations, human resources, financial management, security, emergency preparedness and response, and monitoring. WFP achieved an 80 percent compliance with the targets set out in the 2017–2020 quadrennial comprehensive policy review (QCPR). In 2017, WFP received record contribution revenue of USD 6 billion, but total operational requirements were higher than ever, at USD 9.8 billion. As a result of the USD 3.8 billion funding gap, WFP had to prioritize geographically, between households and across activities, with lifesaving support given precedence. Despite this, WFP was able to achieve significant results, directly reaching 91.4 million beneficiaries through its operations and trust fund activities. Cash Based Transfers increased sharply to a record USD 1.4 billion, of which 50% was unrestricted, reaching 19 million beneficiaries in 60 countries. While responding to emergencies remained a focus in 2017 – with Level 3 and Level 2 emergencies accounting for 68 percent of the total program of work – WFP made major strides in nutrition, engaging with smallholders, collaborating with national governments and providing common services such as the UN Humanitarian Air Services (UNHAS). While partnerships have always played a central role in WFP’s work, the 2017-2021 strategic plan systematically integrates the principle of partnership into WFP’s Strategic Objectives related to SDG 17. Particular attention was paid to collaboration among the Rome-based agencies.   B - Sida support 2017 Contributions from Sida’s humanitarian funding to WFP during 2017 were directed at (i) Emergency/Crisis Response and (ii) Logistics operations. Overall, and considering the degree of financing made available it is concluded that WFP managed the funds well and achieved respectable results in the operations financed by Sida during 2017. (i) Emergency/Crisis Response WFP was in transition during 2017 from a project based organization to the use of Country Strategic Plans, often of a duration of 5 years. In the new approach the previous Emergency and Protracted Response projects fall under the new category Crisis Response. The funding provided by Sida during 2017 in this area was directed at crisis in Iraq, Central African Republic, Nigeria, Yemen, Ethiopia, Somalia, Syria and Tanzania, with the last two being contributions to Strategic Outcomes in Country Strategic Plans that addressed Crisis Response. Sida will continue to provide funding as flexible as possible, preferably
