Mission and objectives

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes. Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and the most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need. WFP Nepal’s Country Strategic Plan (CSP) 2019-2023 was approved by the WFP Executive Board in November 2019 and became effective from 1 January 2019. It aims to contribute to five Strategic Outcomes (SOs) that are aligned to five Strategic Results of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 2 (Zero Hunger) and SDG 17 (Partnerships for the Goals). A total of ten Activities are being implemented to achieve the contributions to the six SOs. The six Strategic Outcomes (SO) are: SO 1: affected populations in Nepal have timely access to adequate food and nutrition during and in the aftermath of natural disasters and/or other shocks. SO 2: Food Insecure people in targeted areas have improved nutrition throughout the key stages of the life-cycle by 2025. SO 3: Vulnerable communities in remote, food-insecure areas of Nepal have improved food security and resilience to climate and other shocks by 2030. SO 4: The Government of Nepal has strengthened capabilities to provide essential food security services and respond to crises by 2023. SO 5: Government efforts towards achieving Zero Hunger by 2030 are supported by inclusive and coherent policy frameworks across all spheres of government by 2023. SO 6: Humanitarian and development partners have access to reliable common services by the end of 2023.
