Summary of WFP assistance:
WFP's interventions in Uganda focus on three priority areas: emergency humanitarian action; food and nutrition security; and agriculture and market support, which includes Purchase for Progress (P4P). These are implemented through a Protracted Relief and Recovery Operation (PRR0 200824) for emergency humanitarian action and a country programme (200894) for food and nutrition security and agriculture and market support.
