Mission and objectives

The United Nations World Food Programme is the world’s largest humanitarian organization, saving lives in emergencies and using food assistance to build a pathway to peace, stability and prosperity for people recovering from conflict, disasters and the impact of climate change.


Today, climate extremes are one of the leading causes of food insecurity, triggering an unprecedented rise in global hunger, and endangering the livelihoods and lives of millions in the Asia Pacific region and across the world. Given the enormity of climate hazards, much of WFP’s operations in recent years has included activities to reduce disaster risk, build resilience and help people adapt to climate change. To work with communities to make them safer and more resilient, WFP must leverage its advocacy potential while making a strong investment case for better systems and more predictable funding to reach its goals. Such support and commitments are needed to anticipate, manage and prepare for future impacts on food and nutrition security, and to support longer-term climate change adaptation. The goal of the Asia Pacific advocacy strategy is to build the social and political will required to support WFP efforts in climate change adaptation in Asia and the Pacific, contributing to WFP’s mission in building strong and enduring food systems and resilient communities.

Task description

The Online Volunteer will provide research support to the development of WFP's regional advocacy strategy on climate change. Responsibilities included: - Conducting desk review and compiling best examples/cast studies that best demonstrate WFP’s value added in building resilient communities against climate change in Asia and the Pacific region over the years; - Conducting remote interviews with formal and current WFP staff to capture their institutional memories on WFP’s achievements in resilience building that has helped communities better cope with and mitigate the risks of climate change.
