WFP’s operations in Cameroon comprise activities aimed at helping reduce poverty in a sustainable manner by promoting basic education and increasing food security through the creation of assets for the most vulnerable households. Interventions target the three provinces of the north, whose situation is critical in terms of education, agricultural production and the nutritional condition of the population.
WFP provides food aid to primary schools, improves food security for at-risk populations by setting up community cereal granaries, and improves rural infrastructure through food-for-work (FFW) activities while also working, through an emergency operation, with Central African Republic and Chadian refugees. WFP is assisting over 200,000 people in Cameroon.
