Since 1998, WFP has supported more than 20 million food-insecure Indonesians, primarily in the aftermath of natural disasters and economic shocks.
WFP Country programme 2012–2015 (country programme 200245) reflects Indonesia’s dynamic transformation from low-income to middle-income status and the challenges of ensuring that the poorest and most vulnerable people escape the cycle of hunger and undernutrition as the country progresses economically.
The three strategic priorities over the period of 2012-2015 are to:
1)Address food insecurity through enhance monitoring, analysis and mapping capacity
2)Prepare for and respond to disasters and shocks; and
3)Reduce under nutrition below critical levels.
Over the four years of country programme 200245, WFP’s direct food assistance will reach 417,000 beneficiaries. WFP will help the Government to reduce undernutrition to below critical levels, giving priority to the first 1000 days from the womb to 2 years of age.
WFP will enhance government and community capacities to monitor, analyse, map and address food insecurity in disaster preparedness and response components, which will proceed on a twin-track approach whereby WFP will respond directly to immediate food and nutrition needs in the most vulnerable groups while investing in capacity development that foster local ownership and sustainability, leverage strategic partnerships and build on successes.
By increasing the emphasis on capacity development, WFP aims to benefit millions of food-insecure people in the coming years.
The Country programme 200245 is designed to complement government priorities on the basis of consultation at the national and provincial levels. The Country Programme was prepared to complement the Government’s 2010-2014 Medium Term Development Plan (Rencana pembangunan Jangka Menengah Nasional, RPJMN) and to be aligned with the 2011-2015 Food and Nutrition Action Plan (Rencana Aksi Nasional Pangan dan Gizi, RAN-PG), which is designed to accelerate progress towards the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
WFP focus primarily on the provinces of Aceh, Nusa Tenggara Timur, Nusa Tenggara Barat and Papua.
