This grant represents Canada’s long-term institutional support to the World Food Programme (WFP). WFP uses these funds, along with other donors’ funding, to achieve its mandate. WFP is the food assistance arm of the United Nations and is the largest humanitarian organization fighting hunger in the world. Its mandate is to provide food assistance quickly to vulnerable people in humanitarian emergencies such as natural disasters, civil conflict and war, and reduce global food insecurity. Global Affairs Canada's support to WFP helps fulfill its mandate through activities that include: (1) saving lives and protecting livelihoods in emergencies; (2) supporting or restoring food security and nutrition, and establishing or rebuilding livelihoods in fragile settings and following emergencies; (3) reducing risk and enabling people, communities and countries to meet their own food and nutrition needs; and (4) reducing under-nutrition and break the intergenerational cycle of hunger.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes as stated by the World Food Programme include: (1) improved access to food and nutrition assistance for food-insecure populations; and (2) increased ability of the World Food Programme to provide appropriate responses to humanitarian crises. The expected ultimate outcome is the reduced vulnerability of crisis-affected people, especially women and children.
