Digital Foundations: Digital Transformation and our fight against hunger
An overview of how digital innovation, technology and data analysis are foundational to WFP’s work in action – from the COVID-19 response to climate change, social protection, and conflict.

Under the leadership of the Executive Director, digitalization has been an organizational priority at WFP for the past five years and benefits from a decades-long heritage of innovation in the field. Guided by a people-centered approach, the organization has invested time, resources and ingenuity in developing and implementing digital innovation, data analytics and technology solutions that are delivering substantial measurable benefits to the people we serve.   


“Digital Foundations” explores how digital transformation has enhanced WFP operations and programmes. From mobile-enabled food security monitoring systems that give a voice to hard-to-reach populations to an award-winning intelligent supply chain platform that optimizes food delivery for millions of beneficiaries. From drones deployed to assess disaster impact to satellite-indexed insurance schemes that protect smallholder livelihoods. As hunger rises around the world, we must come together to responsibly leverage the power of digital technology to save lives and change lives more effectively and efficiently than ever before.
