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.
Assisting almost 100 million
people in around 83 countries each year, the World Food Programme (WFP)
is the leading humanitarian organization saving lives and changing
lives, delivering food assistance in emergencies, and working with
communities to improve nutrition and build resilience. WFP partners with
governments, other international organizations and UN agencies, the
private sector, and more than 1,000 national and international NGOs in
its operations to provide food assistance and tackle the underlying
causes of hunger.
The WFP Country Strategic Plan 2022-2027 seeks
to ensure that vulnerable populations achieve climate-resilient
livelihoods and improved food security and nutrition through sustained
smallholder access to markets, enhanced value chains, and sustainable
management of natural resources. This objective will be achieved by
supporting smallholder men and women producers to diversify livelihoods,
reduce post-harvest loss, and improve access to information,
technologies, and markets.
