Pakistan: Food Distributions Scale Up For Displaced Families From North Waziristan

WFP is rushing to distribute food rations to all registered families who have fled fighting in Pakistan’s North Waziristan Agency under tough conditions.


WFP Pakistan continues to build partnerships and coordinate interventions with the Government, UN agencies, NGOs and donors.  WFP co-leads the Food Security Cluster with FAO, and is part of the Cluster’s Cash and Voucher Working Group.  Under the One-UN Programme, WFP chairs the Information and Communications Technology working group as well as leads the Strategic Priority Area 6 (SPA-6), which addresses food and nutrition security for the most vulnerable, and is a member agency of the Strategic Priority Areas 3 focusing on enhancing national resilience to disasters, crises and external shocks.  The WFP-led Logistics and Emergency Telecommunications Clusters are on standby, ready to be activated in case of an emergency.
