Non-Governmental Organisations

Strengthening partnerships continues to be key tenet of WFP's vision. WFP works annually with a large variety of civil society organizations including international NGOs, national NGOs and Community-based Organizations (CBOs) as well as members of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement (International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC), International Committee of the Red Cross and Red Crescent (ICRC) and national societies). As emphasized throughout the new WFP Strategic Plan 2014-2017, these partners play a critical role in assisting WFP to reach its objectives.

In 2013 alone, WFP partnered with nearly 1,400 civil society partners, the majority of which were national NGOs/CBOs and national Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. Together, WFP’s civil society partners distributed a total of approximately 2.3 million metric tons, or 74%, of WFP food in 2013.

For a brief snapshot of operational partnership carried out in recent years, please see the fact sheets available below; more information pertaining to 2013 will soon be published.  Additional information from previous years can also be found by visiting the Annual Reports section of this website.
