Monitoring and evaluation of anticipatory actions for drought Guidance and tools for Forecast-based Financing programmes

Monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning on Forecast-based Finance (FbF) and Anticipatory Action (AA) is a key priority for the World Food Programme (WFP), with a focus on the development of appropriate methodologies, tools and applied research to effectively capture and communicate the impact of anticipatory action on vulnerable populations and demonstrate the value-added achieved through more forward-looking and risk-informed response systems. 

In 2021, WFP has developed this guidance which seeks to offer practical guidance and examples for monitoring and evaluating anticipatory actions for drought, helping to answer the overarching question of “Does drought FbF make a difference” to reduce or mitigate the impacts on affected populations. The methods and tools compiled in this guide should be helpful to anyone working on Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) of anticipatory action for drought.
