Program Overview

Program Description:
Food aid and food-oriented assistance continue to be the single largest component of international humanitarian response activities. Lingering protracted humanitarian crises place an enormous strain the humanitarian system, and it has become clear that more effort must be put into building resiliency and lasting food security. At the same time, recent food price volatility has grabbed the attention of world leaders, and food security has become a top priority for multi-lateral organizations and bi-lateral donors. When it comes to food security, key decisions are being made and solutions are being found at the Rome-based agencies of the United Nations in partnership with diplomatic missions and international civil society present in Italy. - See more at:
