What is the Immediate Response Account?
The Immediate Response Account (IRA) is WFP’s life-saving funding facility, which allows WFP to rapidly respond to emergencies. IRA-financed assistance can be deployed within 24 hours of the onset of a crisis.
What is the importance of the IRA?
Contributions to the IRA have the highest degree of flexibility and are non–earmarked. This allows WFP’s executive leadership to identify priority operations. As it consists of multilateral funding, the IRA reinforces the principles of timeliness, predictability and flexibility.
