Mission and objectives

WFP Centre of Excellence against Hunger is a global forum for policy dialogue and South-South learning in school feeding, nutrition and food security programmes. The Centre, a partnership between WFP and the Brazilian government, was created to support governments in Africa, Asia and Latin America in developing sustainable solutions against hunger. Initially, but not exclusively, the WFP Centre will focus on 18 priority countries in these regions. We provide policy advice, technical assistance, learning opportunities and global knowledge platform that brings southern nations together and helps them develop their own programmes.


The Beyond Cotton project is a joint initiative of WFP Centre of Excellence against Hunger Brazil and the Brazilian Cooperation Agency, with the support of the Brazilian Cotton Institute. Its objective is to support smallholder cotton farmers and public institutions in African countries in linking cotton by-products and intercropped crops – such as corn, sorghum and beans – to estable markets, including school feeding programmes.  Based on the activities carried out in the country to expand the productive and commercialization capacities of healthier foods, thematic technical content will be built, referring to sustainable production, water management, food and nutrition education.
