The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. We are the world’s largest humanitarian organization, saving lives in emergencies and using food assistance to build a pathway to peace, stability and prosperity for people recovering from conflict, disasters, and the impact of climate change.
WFP celebrates and embraces diversity. It is committed to the principle of equal employment opportunity for all its employees and encourages qualified candidates to apply irrespective of race, color, national origin, ethnic or social background, genetic information, gender, gender identity and/or expression, sexual orientation, religion or belief, HIV status, physical or mental disability.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE OF THE ASSIGNMENT
WFP Togo is implementing a second-generation country strategic plan (CSP) which was approved by the Executive Board in June 2022 to cover the period from July 2022–December 2026. It enables WFP to reposition itself as a key player of SDG2 – Zero hunger – and to transition from exclusive direct assistance to increased advisory and enabling support to the Government, especially the design and piloting of the home-grown school feeding programme and its linkage to local food production and nutrition, logistics and climate adaptation. WFP country office in Togo is also operating the logistics corridor into central Sahel and hosts a global commodity management framework for WFP’s west and central Africa region (RBD).
Over the past year, the north of the country has been facing a critical security crisis that has particularly stressed the chronic and acute humanitarian needs of the vulnerable populations, especially in the Savanes region bordering with Burkina Faso. The spill-over effects of the crisis in the Sahel countries have led to the influx of thousands of Burkinabe refugees adding up another layer of social distress and humanitarian needs to the already-vulnerable host populations in the Savanes region. The Government with the support of UNHCR has started the registration of refugees, and so far about 6,500 people have been registered. However, in a recent letter from the Togo Minister of Security and Civil Protection sent to UNHCR, the number of refugees estimated by the government is 20,000 the number of IDPs is 32,000 (as of 03 March 2023). The Savanes region is undeniably the most food insecure part of the country, with 35% of the nationwide number of people living in IPC 3+, corresponding to 200,000 out of 570,000 people in dire need of food and nutrition assistance (Cadre Harmonise Nov 2022).
