The United Nations World Food Programme is the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes.
In 2012, the World Food Programme’s (WFP) Executive Board adopted a Policy on Humanitarian Protection that sets out WFP’s role and responsibilities in relation to supporting and promoting the protection of people it seeks to assist through its programmes. Over the long-term, this Protection Policy aims to: foster an agency that consciously and positively contributes to the promotion of the rights of people it seeks to assist; develop a body of humanitarians who are better informed about protection concerns; and provide assistance which contributes to safer, more dignified, and more accountable solutions to food insecurity and hunger.
In Mozambique, on behalf of the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT), WFP has established an inter-agency complaints and feedback mechanism (CFM) as part of the Cyclone Idai and Kenneth humanitarian responses’ AAP. The CFM consists of a toll-free hotline “Linha Verde” managed from Maputo. As part of WFP’s commitments to AAP, WFP has further put in place minimum CFM and other communication with communities (CwC) mechanisms in its food assistance programming, including complaints and feedback boxes, helpdesks and community committees.
Under the supervision of the Protection Advisor based in Beira, the Senior Programme Associate (Protection) will support ensuring the integration of protection and AAP into WPF’s programmes in Sofala province, in line with WFP’s Protection Policy.
