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. Zambia is a lower-middle income country with strong economic growth, but this has not resulted in improved nutrition and food security or equitable social development. WFP has adopted strategies to support the country’s vision to become an industrial middle-income country by 2030.

In line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Assistance Framework (UNSDAF), WFP has been providing technical assistance aimed at strengthening the capacity of national institutions to implement sustainable anti-hunger programmes such as nutrition-sensitive social protection and disaster resilience building programmes, consistent with the Government’s agenda to reduce poverty, hunger and malnutrition in Zambia. WFP’s support to poverty reduction programmes looks to leverage the organization’s catalytic demand as a buyer of food, to support crop diversification and sustainable development solutions in Zambia through strategic partnerships with the government and the private sector.
