WFP Indonesia profile (in English)

The new WFP’s Country Programme 2012-2015 reflects Indonesia’s dynamic transfor-mation from low income to middle income status and challenges of ensuring that the poorest and most vulnerable people escape the cycle of hunger and under-nutrition as the country progresses economically.

The country programme also reflects the shift in WFP’s role from direct operational engagement to capacity development of the government and the communities to address food security and nutrition challenges. WFP support the government to enhance the capacity to address food and nutrition insecurity and disaster preparedness through technical assistance, prototyping and policy advocacy.
While investing in capacity development of local actors, WFP is also responding to immediate food and nutrition needs through innovative approach and partnership. Through this twin track approach, WFP ensures local ownership and sustainability, leverage strategic partnerships and build on incremental success.
WFP focuses primarily on the food insecure provinces Nusa Tenggara Timur, Nusa Tenggara Barat and Papua, while keeping a small liaison office in Aceh.
