ABOUT WFP
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. Present in nearly 80 countries mostly affected by disasters emanating from natural and human – induced hazards, the organization has the global footprint, deep field presence and local knowledge and relationships necessary to provide access to nutritious food and contribute to the lasting solutions, especially in many of the world’s most remote and fragile areas.

In Tanzania, WFP collaborates with the Government to address crises caused by natural hazards and climate changes by building the resilience of vulnerable populations through provision of technical assistance and capacity strengthening. These include strengthening data analysis for early warning and early response as well as conducting simulations.

Likewise, in Zanzibar, various studies highlight the vulnerability of the island to various hazards. Zanzibar as other islands in the world has been experiencing a quite significant number of disastrous events of both natural and human-induced origin and is continually prone to a variety of such or other hazardous events. Zanzibar Disaster Risks and Capacity Needs Assessment of 2008 shows that these disasters are related but not limited to drought, floods, environmental degradation, and strong winds as well as fire outbreaks, marine accidents, epidemics.

WFP has identified a number of entry points to support the government of Zanzibar to stregthen its capacity on disaster preparednesand response capacity. WFP will build on the earlier initiatives done in Mtwara and Lindi and the consultative processes held in Zanzibar by engaging a Local Consultant to work with Local Government in the two regions as well as in Zanzibar through the Disaster Management Commission.
