The United Nations World Food Programme is a leading organization delivering food assistance and working with communities to improve nutrition and build resilience. We also support governments of developing countries in their efforts to eliminate hunger and malnutrition by addressing the underlying causes and disparities in access to food and good nutrition to ensure that no one is left behind in line with the Agenda 2030, Sustaining Peace and Agenda for Humanity. WFP is particularly focused on Goals 2 (Zero Hunger) and 17 (Partnerships).
With natural disasters becoming more frequent and intense due to climate change, enhancing national capacities in emergency preparedness and response is a priority for the Pacific Island Countries. WFP intends to support these nationally-led efforts through its Pacific strategy which aims to strengthen national capacities to reduce the risk of, prepare for and respond to disasters. This will be pursued through investments in logistics, emergency telecommunications and food security. WFP sees partnerships and innovations as a vital part of its strategy.
