Feeding More People Better Food

Commitment by

United Nations World Food Programme

At CGI Asia in 2008, the World Food Programme committed to feed more people in Asia more highly nutritious food during emergencies, in post-disaster- recovery settings, and in longer-term development situations. The activities, worth $15,000,000, are focused in six Asian countries and should reach an estimated one million vulnerable people with new and improved fortified and processed food products that will have a positive, direct impact on their nutritional status.

At last reporting in 2011, WFP has launched their Feeding the Future program in Laos that will provide nutrition education to mothers and children. In Myanmar, the WFP's nutrition program is working to address malnutrition in pregnant and lactating women. Over 27,000 children and more than 7,000 mothers in Myanmar have received nutrition rations through this program.
