WFP scales up to support the most vulnerable in global food crisis

The World Food Programme (WFP) is leveraging its global presence, capabilities, and partnerships to mitigate the global food crisis fuelled by conflict, climate shocks and COVID-19, compounded by the ripple effects of the war in Ukraine. WFP is responding to the global food crisis by:

• Stepping up direct food and nutrition assistance to save lives and livelihoods

• Providing technical assistance and services to support national social protection systems

• Leveraging partnerships, services and programmes to strengthen food systems.

WFP requires US$22.2 billion to deliver on its operational plan this year and save millions of people from disaster. WFP is very grateful to its donors, including the United States as its biggest single donor, who are stepping up their funding to confront this massive threat. More contributions however are vital as needs are growing and deeper risks lie ahead.
