How WFP Contributed to Serving More Than 1 Million Nutrition Beneficiaries Annually in Niger

How WFP Contributed to Serving More Than 1 Million Nutrition Beneficiaries Annually in Niger

In April 2015, two case-studies were released by the World Food Programme (WFP) about how they supported the Scaling-Up-Nutrition Roll-Out in Malawi and Niger. This is the case study for Niger.

The Niger case-study delves into detail about how the WFP office in Niger transformed from a country office with nearly no nutrition programming to one that is treating the largest number of children with acute malnutrition globally in ten years. Key success factors identified were:

  • Increasing nutrition technical capacity
  • Prioritising nutrition in the Country Office and on the national agenda
  • Forming a durable alliance between WFP and UNICEF
  • Using data to inform nutrition programming
