Afghanistan: WFP Winter Stock Prepositioning (13 November 2017)


As a mountainous country with poor road infrastructure, large swathes of Afghanistan are inaccessible in winter due to adverse weather conditions and snow cover. In 2017 WFP Afghanistan plans to preposition 1,600 mt of food for 74,600 vulnerable Afghan men, women and children to strategic locations that enable distributions to continue uninterrupted through the winter months.
