  • Description: Summary: This report presents the results of the evaluation of DG ECHO’s Sahel Strategy, from 2010 to 2014. The aim of ECHO’s Strategy was to reduce mortality linked to malnutrition through treatment, as well as small-scale prevention activities to address the ‘root causes’ of malnutrition. The evaluation concludes that ECHO was effective in reducing mortality, but was not successful in reducing malnutrition overall, suggesting that the results gained may not be sustainable. Malnutrition is a continuing problem in the region and there remains a lack of government ownership of the problem, as well as a lack of national capacity. International development donors are not yet managing to address chronic malnutrition and its structural causes at community level. This evaluation recognises some of the significant achievements of the Sahel Strategy in making steps towards the linking of relief, rehabilitation and development actions (LRRD), but also finds that more needs to be done in this area. It proposes that ECHO develop a theory of change for the future implementation of the Strategy; that it works together with DG DEVCO to develop joint humanitarian development frameworks (JHDFs); and that it develops country-level integration plans as part of its future approach in the region.
