Mission and objectives

The United Nations World Food Programme is a solution provider in the challenge to end hun-ger and malnutrition and focuses on reaching the most food insecure, and the malnourished all over the world. WFP’s dual mandate allows it to use a development lens in its humanitarian responses, and to align early recovery and development interventions accordingly. In Mozambique, WFP has a five-year Country Strategic Plan (2017-2021), which aims to strengthen resilience, emergency preparedness and response while continuing to address the underlying causes of hunger in the country. WFP has collaborative relationships with host governments, donor governments, NGOs, the private sector, the United Nations system, international finance institutions, interna-tional and regional organizations, academia and think tanks. WFP adopts a partnering ap-proach with the children, women and men its serves, the governments that sit on its governing bodies and the media.

Context

WFP has significantly expanded its operations over the last few years. The scale up of opera-tions was due to two major tropical cyclones and a long drought that occurred in Mozambique in 2019. In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic and the escalation of violence and insecurity in northern Mozambique, brought new challenges to WFP Mozambique. In response to the dis-placement crisis in the north, WFP increased the scale of its operations to respond to the in-creasing food and nutritional needs of IDPs and established the United Nations Humanitarian Air Services (UNHAS). As of March 2021, WFP has maintained the corporate Level 2 emer-gency category for Mozambique.
