Published on 20 January 2011

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and the Government of Afghanistan are mapping out a common strategy for providing food aid to millions of vulnerable Afghans over the next three years. WFP’s country representative in Afghanistan, Louis Imbleau, met Vice President Abdul Karim Khalili, in Kabul yesterday, to strengthen coordination between the agency and the ministries with which it works in Afghanistan, where its current three-year Protracted Relief and Recovery Operation, launched last April, aims to help on average 7.3 million vulnerable people each year, mainly in rural areas.
