Current Operations
Building Resilience, Protecting Livelihoods and Reducing Malnutrition of Refugees, Returnees and other Vulnerable People

WFP will shift its operations in Chad from providing relief to strengthening the resilience of vulnerable populations. This shift will enhance the capacity of vulnerable populations to quickly respond to shocks through mechanisms that support the development and integration of local markets: voucher-based transfers and local purchase of food. Where markets are functioning well, vouchers will become the primary mechanism for assistance. WFP will increase local purchases in surplus areas with the aim of increasing efficiency and responsiveness, and fostering market development. In food-insecure areas with inadequate market integration, vulnerable households will receive food donated to WFP in-kind, or food purchased from surplus areas in Chad. Fragile markets will not be disrupted: the timing and scale of the interventions will respond to seasonal patterns and agricultural forecasts.
