Established in 2016, the World Food Programme (WFP) Centre of Excellence in China aims to leverage China’s successful experience in reducing poverty and hunger. Before 2015, China met its Millennium Development Goal of halving hunger, and in so doing it reduced the number of hungry people globally by two thirds.
The aim of WFP’s Centre of Excellence in China is to promote South-South cooperation, so that other countries can learn from China’s experiences.
The Centre facilitates policy dialogue, technical training, expert deployment, policy research, capacity strengthening and other activities pursuant not only to SDG 2, but also SDG 17 on partnerships.
