WFP Policy on Disaster Risk Reduction and Management

Disaster risk reduction is a central priority for WFP in light of the profound impacts that disasters have on food-insecure and vulnerable populations worldwide. In 2010, more than 50 percent of WFP‟s programmes addressed the risks of natural disasters and their impacts on food security, reaching approximately 80 million people.

WFP's disaster risk reduction policy focuses on building the resilience and capacity of the most vulnerable people, communities and countries, by working to ensure food and nutrition security while reducing disaster risk and protecting and enhancing lives and livelihoods.
