About WFP

The United Nations World Food Program is the world’s largest humanitarian organization battling hunger. WFP’s goal is to contribute to the world’s effort to eradicate hunger during our lifetimes

The hunger crisis in Afghanistan is spreading quickly, with more than half of the country’s 40 million people now experiencing acute food insecurity—the most significant figure witnessed by the humanitarian community in Afghanistan. Work possibilities are becoming scarce, with most households reporting only one day of work each week. This comes on top of the worst drought in years, which is especially alarming for 85 percent of the people whose livelihood is based on agriculture.

WFP’s goal in Afghanistan is to prevent and mitigate a severe increase in hunger and malnutrition, which can only be accomplished by scaled-up and maintained complimentary food security and nutrition measures, along with a scale-up of resilience interventions to protect gains. WFP has begun a sizeable month-on-month scale-up of its crisis response and resilience programs across the country, ensuring that the program is provided appropriately and to the right places. WFP is also continually monitoring emerging patterns to anticipate hotspots and ensure the program’s quality and maximum effect through monitoring these hotspots to enable sustained donor advocacy.

Job Objectives

To provide adequate specialist support and technical analyses to policy and program actions that address food assistance requirements effectively.
