The World Food Programme (WFP) has elevated Uganda as a global procurement hub, paving way for more than 1,000 grain farmers in the country to benefit from local procurement. Already as part of the scheme for setting standards, the WFP has constructed more than 70 Silos across the country for post-harvest management to ensure that high standards are maintained.
Mr Elkhidir Daloum, the WFP country director, said Uganda produces grains in excess and has the capacity to supply the entire East African region and beyond. He said over the last three years, WFP has procured more than 300,000 metric tonnes of grains locally. He said they have injected more than $100m (about Shs368 billion) into the local economy through the local purchases.

Le 7 juillet 2017, le gouvernement de la République démocratique du Congo (RDC) a publié un nouveau rapport révélant le coût social et économique de la sous-nutrition dans le pays. Cette étude met l’accent sur les pertes considérables subies chaque année en raison des coûts accrus des soins de santé, des fardeaux supplémentaires pesant sur le système éducatif et de la productivité amoindrie de la population active. On estime le montant de ces coûts à 1,637 milliard de francs congolais par an, soit 1 milliard de dollars US.
L’étude sur le coût de la faim (CDFA) a été entreprise par le gouvernement de la RDC en collaboration avec le Programme alimentaire mondial des Nations Unies (PAM), la Commission de l’Union africaine (CAU), le nouveau partenariat pour le développement de l’Afrique (NEPAD) et la Commission économique des Nations Unies pour l’Amérique...

The World Food Programme (WFP) is the food-assistance branch of the United Nations and the world's largest humanitarian organization addressing hunger and promoting food security. WFP works to help people who cannot produce or obtain enough food for themselves and their families. It assists 80 million people in and around 80 countries each year, delivering food assistance in emergencies and working with communities to improve nutrition and build resilience.
