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.

BACKGROUND

The World Food Programme (WFP) is the world’s largest humanitarian agency, fighting hunger worldwide. WFP’s work in Liberia aims to provide safety nets to strengthen food and nutrition security through school feeding and social protection measures. It also assists in strengthening Liberia’s capacity to own and implement hunger solutions. Primarily, the work has been focused on the following areas: Supporting recovery efforts after Ebola, Support to education, Livelihood Asset and Market Promotion (LAMP), Support to refugees, Nutrition support to HIV/TB patients. Importantly, The WFP Executive Board in 2016 approved the integrated roadmap (including the strategic plan 2017-2021) for a complete change for improved programming. In line with this objective, the Liberia Country Office (CO) embarked on a new country strategic planning process for the re-alignment of activities, outputs, outcomes and financial resources to enable the Office achieve better results and impact. As a result, WFP’s Executive Board approved the Country Strategic Plan for Liberia (2019-2023) defining WFP’s contribution to the Government of Liberia’s efforts to achieve Agenda 2030.
