Current Operations
Logistics Augmentation in Support of PRRO 20050 (formerly PRRO 10189.3)

This Operation has been modified and extended in time until 31 March 2010 as per Budget revision 4 (see below).

The food aid requirement of Central African Republic (CAR) has drastically increased to cater for the need of an additional 190,000 IDPs due to the unstable security situation and the fighting between rebel groups and government forces.

The food requirement in PRRO 10189.3 has been increased by 25,382 mt and the period of the operation extended through December 2007.

The current logistics infrastructure in CAR cannot cope with WFP’s new operational requirements. This Special Operation (SO), therefore, addresses the augmentation required to enable WFP to deliver this increased quantity to the beneficiaries of CAR.

This SO addresses 4 sectors that require immediate augmentation:

  • fleet augmentation;
  • provision of increased storage capacity in the field;
  • provision of temporary office and living accommodation for WFP staff;
  • ad hoc road repairs.

The Special Operation will have a duration of 9 months in order to support the PRRO 10189.3 and facilitate the subsequent demobilization of the logistics assets.
