World Food Programme Strategy for Support to Social Protection

This strategy explains how WFP will contribute to the development of high quality national social protection systems and programmes in contexts of food insecurity, as a complement to WFP’s work in responding to food security-related emergencies. It sets out WFP’s two priorities in social protection - first, supporting the ability of social protection to help people meet their food security, nutrition and other essential needs, and second, to manage risks and shocks - and outlines the actions WFP will undertake to assist the achievement of those objectives. The strategy builds on decades of experience in the field, consolidating WFP’s approach for the years ahead.
