WFP cannot fight global hunger and poverty alone. We have five types of partner: 

National Governments

The governments of the countries where WFP operates are our principal partners. Co-ordination and co-operation with them are essential - both in emergencies and development projects. Learn more  


WFP collaborates with a large number of NGO and and civil society partners across all regions and sectors of its operations. These partners are critical, not only for the implementation of projects, but also for strategic collaboration in the fields of policy, advocacy and programme design. Learn more 

FAO and IFAD  

The three Rome-based UN agencies - WFP, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) - work together to defeat hunger in the world. Learn more 

Other UN agencies

WFP often collaborates with other UN Agencies relying on its sister organisations for technical advice and non-food resources in both crises and development situations. Learn more

Corporate Partners

WFP is seeking additional funding and valuable expertise from private companies active in areas such as transport, food, information and communications technology, logistics, finance and human resources. Learn more
