Measures to Enhance WFP's Programming in the Poorest Countries

WFP’s Mission Statement establishes that WFP should allocate at least 50 percent of development resources to least developed countries (LDCs) and at least 90 percent to lowincome, food-deficit countries (LIFDCs) and LDCs combined.1 One quarter of the world’s more than 800 million chronically undernourished people live in LDCs, i.e., four out of 10 people. LIFDCs (including LDCs) are home to 88 percent of the world’s hungry poor.
