WFP Policy on Disaster Risk Reduction

Disaster risk reduction activities frequently form part of WFP’s work programme: food-for work activities for example often aim to improve livelihood opportunities and make communities more resilient, while vulnerability assessments provide a good basis for disaster risk reduction work. For WFP, disaster risk reduction also means complementing emergency response and preparedness with targeted prevention and preparedness activities before disaster strikes. Guided by governments and working with partners, WFP can contribute to national disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation frameworks thanks to its disaster management competency, experience, services and deep field presence
