ABOUT WFP

ORGANIZATIONAL CONTEXT

Bangladesh has experienced sustained economic growth in recent years – one of the fastest in Asia prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, 40 million people remain food insecure and 11 million suffer from acute hunger. The country’s low elevation and vast watercourses leave it greatly susceptible to climate shocks. Since 2017, Bangladesh has also seen a massive influx of Rohingya refugees, with almost three quarters of a million fleeing across the border from Myanmar since 2017 alone.

Since beginning its activities in Bangladesh in 1974, the World Food Programme (WFP) has touched the lives of more than 155 million people through both emergency response and longer-term resilience-building for improved food and nutrition security. While continuing to provide humanitarian assistance, WFP is shifting towards a more advisory role, assisting the Government in efforts to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 2 on ending hunger.

Our Country Strategic Plan 2022-2026 reinforces WFP’s commitment to working with the Government to improve the food security, nutrition, and resilience of vulnerable communities, while also providing emergency food assistance to people affected by disasters.
