Author: Isis Ferrera
Recognizing urban areas as a crucial operational context, the WFP Urban Strategy provides a common vision and strategic framework for WFP's contribution to achieving zero hunger in urban areas

With poverty, inequality, and risks increasingly concentrating in cities, the burden of food insecurity and malnutrition is gradually shifting from rural to urban areas. WFP is adapting its efforts to meet urgent food and nutrition needs and build resilience in urban areas.

The WFP Urban Strategy recognises urban areas as a crucial operational context for WFP, and outlines a framework with key priorities, actions and programmatic shifts needed to achieve zero hunger in urban areas.
