This report presents the results of a learning process focused on assessing the influence which the Department for International Department (DFID) and AusAIDfunded Regional Hunger and Vulnerability Programme (RHVP) had on policy, and capturing the lessons learned from these experiences. Drawing on the RAPID Outcome Assessment methodology, it involved first assessing the changes seen in six key stakeholder groups over the life of the programme; second, analysing the causes and influences behind these changes; and third, interpreting what lessons this has for future programmes similar to RHVP, and for DFID. The process involved three phases, first „homework‟ where the RHVP team collected evidence of changes in stakeholder groups; second, a two-day workshop in which the changes were discussed and analysed; and third, the write-up, drafted by the RHVP team and compiled and synthesised by the Overseas Development Institute (ODI).
