Disability Inclusive School Feeding Practice Guide - Regional Bureau for Asia and the Pacific

This paper was developed collaboratively with the World Food Programme’s Regional Bureau for Asia and the Pacific based in Bangkok (RBB) between July 2022 and May 2023. The paper responds to a desire by World Food Programme (WFP) to strengthen disability inclusion across its school-based feeding programmes. To date, disability inclusive school-based feeding programmes have been extremely limited in number and in scope, both within and external to WFP. This means that the evidence base for what works is not extensive. This paper aims to address that gap, informed by data collected from interviews with selected WFP staff in the region; desk research focusing on Lao People’s Democratic Republic (PDR) and Nepal; and qualitative research with external stakeholders in Lao PDR (in November 2022) and Nepal (in April 2023). Where available, this paper draws on examples observed during field visits to both Lao PDR and Nepal
