1. Executive Summary
The Kenya refugee operation is often cited as an example of a protracted refugee situation with traditional refugee camps in place for the past 20 or so years. In the last four years, however, the operation has been anything but static in responding to two major influxes from neighbouring countries while undergoing a transition in terms of partnerships and innovations in assistance delivery.
Tracking food security trends in vulnerable countries
The Global Food Security Update provides a quarterly overview of key food security trends in vulnerable countries. Information is provided by WFP VAM field teams and partners.
Conflict in Iraq has disrupted food markets, leading to price hikes in Anbar, Salah Al-Din and Kirkuk. According to the 2014-2015 Strategic Response Plan, around 5.2 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, and over 2.5 million people are currently displaced.
WFP’s vision is to make Rwanda a food secure country where people are well nourished, able to develop to their full potential, living in resilient communities and sustainably maintained by effective institutions at all levels. This will be realized through enhancing national capacity to develop, design and manage nationally owned hunger solutions. WFP also plans to model innovations in food assistance programming, as well as to continue its humanitarian support to populations affected by crises.

Rwanda is susceptible to a wide range of disaster threats, including floods, droughts, strong storms and volcanic eruptions. In the past two decades, some 2 million people have been affected by these and other climate-induced hazards—hazards that will only increase as the effects of climate change grow both in frequency and scale. According to the Notre Dame Global Adaptation (ND-GAIN) Index, Rwanda is the world’s thirteenth most vulnerable country to climate change.
