The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is the leading humanitarian organisation saving lives and changing lives, assisting 115.5 million people in 84 countries by delivering food assistance in emergencies and working with communities to improve nutrition and build resilience. Food and food-related assistance lie at the heart of the struggle to break the cycle of hunger and poverty. For its efforts to combat hunger, for its contribution to bettering conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas and for acting as a driving force in efforts to prevent the use of hunger as a weapon of war and conflict, WFP was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2020.
WFP established its presence in the Caribbean in 2018, opening an office in Barbados. The WFP Caribbean Multi-Country Office provides support to 22 countries and territories across the English-and Dutch-speaking Caribbean. The focus of the WFP Caribbean's capacity strengthening programme is on enhancing vulnerability analysis and mapping, end-to-end supply chain management, shock-responsive social protection, food systems strengthening, and climate risk financing. In times of crisis, WFP collaborates with partners to provide direct assistance, such as delivering food, cash, or voucher assistance, or providing emergency logistics or telecommunications services, to alleviate situations that exceed national and regional capacities.
