Operational Updates

  • WFP signed a Letter of Understanding with the National Institute of Statistics to work on data analysis and future studies on food and nutrition security to support decision-making on public policies, programs and interventions. This is an important achievement since Honduras lacks data to identify areas with higher nutrition needs. For the same reason, a study on women of childbearing age and children under five years of age is foreseen to be conducted.

  • WFP and the Zamorano University continue to work on institutional arrangements to implement a course to strengthen the capacities of technicians, community and school leaders in climate change, integrated water resource management and integrated risk management, and food security.

  • Under the Vulnerable Groups Programme, WFP trained health personnel (48 women and 24 men) through food preparation workshops to strengthen the skills of health promoters in the preparation of Super Cereal and Super Cereal Plus and the nutritional content of the fortified complementary cereal. Additionally, WFP trained 18 women and community leaders in the department of Lempira.

  • WFP's Emergency Response Programme provided assistance through commodity vouchers to 3,900 households affected by drought in the Dry Corridor of Honduras.
