In Indonesia, a low-income food-deficit country, more than 100 million people live near or below the poverty line. There are numerous slums; many rural areas lack basic infrastructure; high levels of chronic malnutrition persist. WFP’s realistic appraisal of where its impact will be greatest led to an increasing focus on nutritional interventions, especially for mothers and children, combined with innovative approaches to influencing Government policy through sophisticated and robust food security and nutrition mapping. WFP also plays a central role in anticipating and responding to natural disasters.
