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.

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.
