The government of Angola is providing a response to the emergency caused by the drought that affects Angola and the rest of Southern Africa.
According to the IPC (Integrated Food Security Phase Classification) results released in July 2019 in eight municipalities in the provinces of Cunene, Huila and Cuando Cubango, it is estimated that a total of 421,174 people are considered food insecure (CPI 3, 4 and 5).
This number is predictable to increase to 561,840 in October 2019.
At the request of Ministry of Health, WFP will provide support to develop a school feeding plan targeted to the drought affected Southern provinces based on locally produced and available food and products.
The home-grown school feeding model will be further investigated which also can include sourcing from other surplus producing areas in the countries and does not necessarily have to only be from the four provinces.
HGSF does not necessarily mean that the provision of all commodities will be sourced locally (as this may not be feasible in this context).
In parallel, WFP will support the Government of Angola to develop a National School Feeding Policy to guide the implementation of the current school feeding programme in Angola.
This policy envisages a sustainable, efficient, cost-effective school feeding programme that will address key outcomes of different sectors, such as enrolment and retention rates, food and nutrition insecurity, health and hygiene practices.
It also aims at enhance smallholder farmers’ capacity development and local economic development.
WFP is uniquely positioned to support the Government of Angola achieve the objectives of this contract. In May 2019, the Government of Angola signed a MoU with WFP requesting technical support to strengthen the current national school feeding programme.
To provide support to policy and programme activities that effectively meet food assistance needs.
