WFP in India: 2015 in Review

WFP in India: 2015 in Review

WFP’s engagement in India goes back more than fifty years. These decades have witnessed remarkable socio-economic development in India, and WFP has been continuously evolving to respond to the fast paced changes seen in the country. 

Understanding the needs of a country as vast and diverse as India, WFP’s Country Office in India is pioneering innovative projects and forging new public and private sector partnerships to help achieve food and nutrition security, in-line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), particularly SDG 2.

In 2015, WFP along with representatives from the government, civil society as well as international experts, developed a four year engagement strategy: the Country Strategic Plan, (2015-2018) which lays down WFP’s priorities in-line with the country’s needs.
