UN World Food Programme (WFP) Nepal has been involved in a number of programmes to support the vulnerable communities from areas affected by disaster and food insecurity especially in remote parts of Nepal. The new Country Programme 2013-2017 (CP) of WFP envisions continuing this support to enhance the resilience of vulnerable communities prone to shocks and foster their food and nutrition security.
The CP has following four major interrelated components:
a. Component 1 – livelihood and asset creation (eg. road, foot trail, irrigation canal, drinking water supply etc)
b. Component 2 – education support

d. Component 4 – capacity development support
Under these components various projects/programs are being implemented in collaboration with different Cooperating Partners (CP) in 16 remote districts of Nepal
