Highlights

  • An extension of the Development project until December 2016 is approved. In this frame, WFP Country Office is currently developing a resource mobilization strategy and a communication plan.

  • Prices of food staples have started decreasing due to newly harvested maize in the southern region of the country since last month, helping to improve the access of rural poor people to food.

Operational Updates

  • WFP provided monitoring and evaluation (M&E) tools, including information technology to gather and analyse data collected from school canteens to the regional education structures.

  • In collaboration with the National Institute of Agricultural Training (INFA – Tové) and the Ministry of Grassroots Development, 63 school feeding operators of the World Bank supported project (PDCplus) as well as facilitators of local NGOs operating in the Maritime region were trained on school feeding management and basic accounting.
