The United Nations World Food Programme is the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes. Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.


The West and Central Africa region is facing multiple crisis with a number of hotspots where the deterioration is already causing significant humanitarian impact, and other where violence and fragility threatens to cause further displacements, human and livelihood losses and instability. This is against a well-known backdrop of chronic vulnerabilities, recurring shocks, state fragility and poverty, in particular in the central band of the region.

WFP continues to increase operations in the region and has launched emergency operations in Mali and CAR, North East Nigeria, and more recently Central Sahel (since September 2019) was also elevated to an L3 (and maintained since then as Corporate Attention crisis) given the magnitude of the crisis. In 2023, according to the November 2022 Cadre Harmonise updated analyses, the food security situation continues to deteriorate across the region, with 48.2 Million classified in Phase 3-5. For the 7 sahelian countries levels of food insecurity have close to quadruple the number food insecure in the last 4 years, and similar trends are observed for the coastal countries of the region, under pressure from the 4 Cs (Climate, Conflict, Covid and Costs).
