World Food Programme seeks to build long-term food security in Haiti

Published on 09 April 2010

Nearly three months after the devastating Haiti earthquake, the world development community is looking for ways to feed a nation that struggled to feed itself even before the disaster struck. The UN WFP, the organization essential to feeding so many in Haiti during the initial emergency response period, is currently negotiating the shift towards creating longer term food security in the country in close partnership with the Haitian government. WFP plans on feeding 2.1 million Haitians per month in the near future, and the situation is being complicated by the imminent hurricane season, which could undo progress that has already been made on the ground.
