WFP's operational relationship with NGOs and National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies - Annual Report 2011

2010 was a challenging year for the World Food Programme, with 263 million people affected by natural disasters – 110 million more than in 2004, the year of one of the most destructive tsunamis in history. From the earthquake in Haiti to the drought in Niger and the flooding in Pakistan, WFP and its non-governmental organization (NGO) partners were called on to save lives and help rebuild livelihoods.  These record-level challenges could only be met through proven and successful partnerships with WFP working with its NGO cooperating partners.
