Strategic Plan


The mission of WFP is to end global hunger. Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.

WFP supports national, local and regional food security and nutrition plans. It partners with other United Nations agencies, international organizations, non-governmental organizations, civil society and the private sector to enable people, communities and countries to meet their own food needs.

WFP's Strategic Plan for 2014-2017 provides the framework for WFP’s operations and its role in achieving a world with zero hunger. It continues WFP’s focus on food assistance for the poorest and most vulnerable women, men, boys and girls.

The Plan lays out four objectives:

1. Save lives and protect livelihoods in emergencies;

2. Support food security and nutrition and (re)build livelihoods in fragile settings and following emergencies;

3. Reduce risk and enable people, communities and countries to meet their own food and nutrition needs;

4. Reduce undernutrition and break the intergenerational cycle of hunger.
