Dexis completes the Global Performance Evaluation of the Feed the Future Initiative

Dexis successfully completed the Global Performance Evaluation of the Feed the Future Initiative this past December through USAID’s Bureau for Food Security (USAID/BFS). The Final Global Performance Evaluation Report has recently been released to the public on the Development Clearinghouse Experience (DEC) website here. This performance evaluation was intended to answer questions regarding what Feed the Future has achieved to date, how it is being implemented, and whether expected results are occurring. Dexis sought to assess the extent to which the Feed the Future Initiative has contributed to impacts and results related to poverty, hunger, and undernutrition, particularly against initiative goals of reducing poverty and stunting by 20 percent. To implement the evaluation, Dexis utilized a mixed methods approach that uses a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods and data sources to address each evaluation question. A total of 327 persons were interviewed both in Washington, DC and across a purposively selected sample of five Feed the Future countries –Bangladesh, Ghana, Guatemala, Malawi, and Uganda. The findings for this evaluation are expected to strengthen accountability, shape resource allocation decisions, and allow Feed the Future operating units to modify projects and activities in ways that bolster efficiency and effectiveness.
