Opportunités de carrière : Social Protection Programme Policy Roster (Consultant Level II&III), WFP Regional Bureau Cairo (RBC) (317171)


The UNITED NATIONS WORLD FOOD PROGRAMME (WFP) is the leading humanitarian organization savings lives and changing lives, delivering food assistance in emergencies, working with governments to strengthen national social protection and safety nets, and with communities to build resilience and help them meet their food security and nutrition needs. Powered by the passion, dedication and professionalism of our 20,000 staff worldwide, the WFP assisted 160 million people in 2023 in 120 countries.


Social protection programmes are used by governments to reduce extreme poverty, hunger and inequality. Most countries have at least one social protection scheme in place, with many expanding their social protection schemes in light of recent shocks such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a global leader in fighting hunger and malnutrition worldwide, often in very difficult contexts, the World Food Programme (WFP) is increasingly called upon by governments to support national social protection systems, focusing on two areas: 1) To safeguard and foster food security, nutrition and associated essential needs for the most vulnerable; and 2) To help manage the risks and shocks that households face, as WFP’s areas of comparative advantage and in line with efforts towards Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Two: “End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture”.

To continue responding effectively to challenging contexts while also contributing to longer-term efforts to end hunger, WFP is in the process of strengthening its engagement in support of national social protection systems and safety nets, supporting governments with technical expertise in the development of sustainable hunger-smart and nutrition-sensitive solutions that will support progress which includes providing technical advice and operational services aligned with national social protection strategies (when available) and frameworks. Through its triple role as a technical advisor, service provider and complementary actor, WFP is supporting government efforts to improve social protections, as it works with governments to extend the coverage, comprehensiveness, adequacy and quality of national social protection systems, with the aim to ensure that all people have access, throughout their lives, to strong national social protection systems that safeguard and foster their ability to meet their food security, nutrition and associated essential needs, and to reduce and address the risks and shocks they face.
