Assisting almost 100 million people in around 83 countries each year, the World Food Programme (WFP) is the leading humanitarian organization saving lives and changing lives, delivering food assistance in emergencies and working with communities to improve nutrition and build resilience.
Our mission 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.
In line with global commitments, agreements, strategies and principles on increased interagency collaboration, UNHCR and WFP have created a Joint Programme Excellence and Targeting Hub. The established framework for collaboration provides a strong basis for the two agencies to provide strategic and operational support at country-level, with the objective of improving outcomes for refugees. This will be achieved through a new way of working, ensuring effective use of limited resources by targeting the right people with the right assistance, including support towards longer-term self-reliance.
Through a joint team of roving experts, the hub is providing support to eight country offices throughout the programme cycle: i) Joint situation and context analysis; ii) Integrated programme design, iii) Targeting strategy, iv) Implementation, and v) Monitoring, learning and feedback. Experts are providing remote and/or in-country support, building on existing structures and capacities.
Cameroon has requested support from the Hub in data collection and analysis to boost UNHCR and WFP Country Office capacity to realize joint activities and deliverables.
To support the Cameroon WFP and UNHCR offices in data collection, management and analysis, and result dissemination on the ground, a National consultant is being recruited.
