WFP and climate change: a review of ongoing experience and recommendations for action

Source(s):  World Food Programme (WFP)

Occasional paper n° 23:

This report represents a first systematic review of activities related to climate change conducted by the United Nations World Food Programme, including programmes, capacity development and technical assistance efforts. It identifies six key entry points for supporting vulnerable people and communities, national governments, regional institutions and global partners in their efforts to foster climate related adaptation and mitigation: (i) response to climate-related hunger crises and disasters; (ii) disaster risk reduction and emergency preparedness; (iii) community-based adaptation; (iv) social protection and safety nets; (V) mitigation; and (vi) advocacy and public policy.

The objective of the review is to help identify areas of clear comparative advantage for WFP and therefore support the development of the organization’s strategies and approaches with regards to addressing the impacts of climate change on hunger and nutrition.
