World Food Programme (WFP) in Malawi

The World Food Programme Country Programme (CP) in Malawi in started in March 2012 and will be operational until February 2016. The overarching objective of the programme is to strengthen national capacity to improve primary education outcomes, reduce malnutrition among vulnerable groups, and improve the food security of communities living in disaster-prone areas and build their resilience to shocks. The CP aims to achieve this through its three components: Support to Education, Nutritional Support and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) for Food Security.

World Food Programme launches online version of Africa RiskViewer

The World Food Programme (WFP) has made available an online version of the Africa RiskView software platform that aims to quantify and monitor weather-­related food security risk in Africa. To date it focuses on drought, but inclusion of other weather risks is planned. Africa RiskView translates satellite-­based rainfall information into near real-­time impacts of drought on agricultural production and grazing. By overlaying this data with vulnerability information, the software produces a first order estimation of the drought-­affected population and, in turn response cost estimates.

World Food Programme (WFP) in Burkina Faso

With a population of 14 million (as per Census 2006 data), of whom 43.9 % lives below the poverty line, and almost half is under 15, Burkina Faso is classified as both a least developed country and a low-income, food-deficit country. As the United Nations frontline agency in the fight against hunger, the World Food Programme (WFP) is continually responding to emergencies. But WFP also works to help prevent hunger in the future through programmes that use food as a means to build assets, spread knowledge and nurture stronger, more dynamic communities.
