WFP's Response to the Indian Ocean Tsunami

An EMOP was approved by the Director-General of FAO and the Executive Director of WFP on 3–4 January 2005. Supported by three Special Operations, for logistics, air services and the United Nation Joint Logistics Centre (UNJLC), it aimed to assist up to two million people for a period of six months (January–June, 2005) and was later extended for a full twelve months, to end 2005.
