Joint FAO-WFP Geneva Informal Briefing on Food crises

Leveraging Humanitarian and Development Funding to Reduce Needs and Create More Sustainable Food Systems

Nearly 300 million people around the world need humanitarian assistance and protection in 2024. The UN and partners organizations are appealing for $46.4 billion to assist 180.5 million people across 72 countries. The latest Global Network Against Food Crises (GNAFC) Financial Flows and Food Crisis report reveals substantial discrepancies between humanitarian and development financing flows to food sectors in food crisis countries. There is a need not only for prioritization but also for a better use of humanitarian funding and leveraging of development assistance.

During this briefing, the Global Network Against Food Crises (GNAFC) will present the findings from the Financial Flows and Food Crisis analysis. Our special guest, Ms Catherine Bertini, Managing Director of Global Nutrition Security, The Rockefeller Foundation, (Former Executive Director of WFP), will share with us her view on how to leverage humanitarian funding to reduce needs and build sustainable food systems.  

We count on your engagement and support.
