ABOUT WFP
The
United Nations World Food Programme is the world’s largest humanitarian
agency fighting hunger worldwide. The mission of WFP is to help the
world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes. Every day, WFP works
worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the
poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access
the nutritious food they need.

In emergencies, WFP gets food to
where it is needed, saving the lives of victims of war, civil conflict,
and natural disasters. After an emergency, WFP uses food to help
communities rebuild their shattered lives. Present in nearly 80
countries, the organization has the global footprint, deep field
presence and local knowledge and relationships necessary to provide
access to nutritious food and contribute to the lasting solutions,
especially in many of the world’s most remote and fragile areas. We
manage an operating budget of approximately $5.9 billion each year,
distributing 12.6 billion rations to those most in need. We reach an
average of 80 million people with food assistance in around 80 countries
each year.

ORGANIZATIONAL CONTEXT
WFP
Tanzania is implementing its Country Strategic Plan (CSP) 2017-2022,
which focuses on supporting the Government of Tanzania in its effort to
achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and the Zero Hunger 2030
agenda. The Tanzania CSP aims to progressively shift the focus of WFPs
work from direct implementation of food assistance programmes towards
capacity strengthening and technical assistance to national partners.

As
part of the CSP’s Strategic Outcome 3 (Targeted smallholders in
prioritized districts will have increased access to agricultural markets
by 2030), WFP aims to reach small holder farmers across the country
with a range of initiatives and projects. Incorporating learning from
the past three years of direct project implementation, WFP plans to
further engage Government and partners, to provide accessibility of
services including knowledge and skills development, inputs, and
agri-technology on a national scale. The CO is embarking now in the
formulation of the next CSP 2022 – 2027, and Resilience and Smallholder
farmers market engagement is a key pillar of the next CSP and is
expected to be even more central based on the findings from the CSP
Mid-term review and other on-going evaluations.

WFP aims to
support farmers across Tanzania with a range of initiatives aimed at
increasing access to financing opportunities, quality inputs,
technology, and capacity on post-harvest loss management, and link them
to commercial markets. The Smallholder Farmer (SHF) unit brings together
all of WFP’s on-going and planned agricultural projects including the
Kigoma Joint Programme (KJP); the Climate Smart Agriculture Project and
the Farm to Market Alliance (FtMA).
