The World Food Programme (WFP) remains one of the UK's most important humanitarian partners. We are part of the agency's governance system, the Executive Board, and in 2019 we were the agency's 3rd largest government donor.

Our partnership is particularly important in the context of the FCDO Famine Initiative, given the agency's mandate in food security and food assistance, and increasing global need. The essential work of WFP is more crucial now than ever.

WFP publishes a breakdown of each donor's funding on their website, accessible at https://www.wfp.org/funding.
