Contingency Planning Guidelines
Part I: Defines the aims of contingency planning, the relationship with other WFP planning and programming processes, and the specific respon-sibilities of country offices and regional bureaux and of Headquarters.
Part II: Explains the process - how to go about contingency planning - at the country and regional levels.
PART III: Provides reference and tools, including a template for a contingency plan and guidelines on what to include and what to draw on.
Resulting from the work by the Office of Humanitarian Affairs and the WFP Contingency Planning Working Group, the Guidelines were developed through a process of extensive in-house consultation and represent a distillation of best practice and hard-earned field-based lessons and experiences from recent emergencies.
