The World Food Programme (WFP) headquartered in Italy, is an international entity whose mandate is to fight hunger worldwide by supporting national, local and regional food security and nutrition plans and programmes. It has built strong relationships with international organizations, non-governmental organizations, civil society and the private sector to enable people, communities and countries to meet their own food needs. With respect to climate change, WFP plays a role both in helping governments and communities prepare and respond to shocks, as well as in reducing vulnerability and building lasting resilience. Approximately 40 per cent of WFP’s operations include activities designed to reduce disaster risk, build resilience and help people adapt to climate change. In the last decade alone, 47 per cent of its operations included response to climate-related disasters amounting to a total cost of US$ 23 billion. WFP sought accreditation to the GCF in order to contribute to furthering the objectives of the GCF by delivering further climate action in its projects/programmes, promoting results-based management and gender-sensitive programming, and strengthening national and subnational institutional systems to implement programmes.
