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.

ORGANIZATIONAL CONTEXT

WFP will apply appropriate, risk-informed resilience-building approaches across the triple (humanitarian–development–peace) nexus, saving lives in emergencies while changing lives by assisting populations to adapt and improve their livelihoods and better withstand recurring shocks. Under Strategic Outcome 3 (SO3 – Activity 3), it intends to provide an integrated package of support to enhance climate-adaptive food systems with a special focus on the engagement of women and young smallholder farmers. Along with a focus on resilience building, WFP will also work on the integration of nutrition concerns and gender equality throughout this portfolio.
