Mission and objectives

The World Food Programme (WFP) is the leading humanitarian organization saving lives and changing lives, delivering food assistance in emergencies and working with communities to improve nutrition and build resilience. As the international community has committed to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition by 2030, one in nine people worldwide still do not have enough to eat. Food and food-related assistance lie at the heart of the struggle to break the cycle of hunger and poverty. For its efforts to combat hunger, for its contribution to bettering conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas and for acting as a driving force in efforts to prevent the use of hunger as a weapon of war and conflict, WFP was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2020.


WFP Kenya Country Strategic Plan (CSP) 2018-2023 was approved in June 2018 and went live in July 2018. The CSP contains 4 outcomes and 7 activities. Each of the activities has several outputs. The CSP results frameworks provides details of the indicators that will be used to measure performance for each of the activities. The CSP results framework will be complemented by activity specific indicators that the M&E team in consultation with the activity and outcome managers will develop. In the CSP, WFP Kenya commits to developing baselines for each of the CSP outcomes, monitor and measure progress in achieving the set outcomes through process/activity monitoring, assess performance through outcome monitoring, reviews, and evaluations.
