WFP Indonesia Country Brief, September 2016




  • Yogyakarta Special Province established the firstever Provincial Logistics Cluster in Indonesia.

  • Through the new Country Programme (CP), WFP will contribute to the Government’s plans to reduce food insecurity for 11 million Indonesians, improve nutrition and strengthen emergency preparedness.

  • Limited funding in the first year of the new Country Programme would diminish WFP’s ability to provide the policy advice, technical assistance and capacity development requested by the Government in pursuit of its national development plan.

WFP Assistance

The Country Programme focuses on three strategic results through four activities:

Strategic Result 1: An evidence-based approach will prioritise the most vulnerable people and regions with the aim to reduce severe food insecurity by 1 percent per year.
Activity 1: Support the Government in collecting and analysing food security and nutrition data for optimum policies and programmes.

Strategic Result 2: Consumers will be encouraged to adopt balanced diets through nutrition campaigns and nutrition-sensitive social protection programmes.
Activity 2: Promote balanced diets to address undernutrition and overweight.
Activity 3: Improve the efficiency and nutrition impact of national social protection programmes.

Strategic Result 3: Indonesia’s emergency logistics capacity will be upgraded to respond in a timely and coordinated manner to disasters.
Activity 4: Enhance emergency preparedness and response through the establishment of an integrated network of logistics hubs.

WFP aims to streamline the Government’s programmes by providing policy advice and technical assistance. Direct delivery of food aid will only be provided in the event of a Level 3 emergency.

As leader of the global logistics and emergency telecommunications clusters, WFP will ensure that it can support the Government’s relief work if an emergency occurs.

WFP’s primary partner is the Government, with coordination done by the Ministry of National Development Planning. Each activity will be accompanied by a project agreement with the ministry or ministries concerned – the Coordinating Ministry for Human Welfare and Cultural Affairs, the Ministries of Agriculture, Health, Education, Social Affairs, the Bureau of Meteorology and the National Disaster Management Agency.
