Humanitarian aid; support to WFP operations in Afghanistan

Description

Afghanistan suffers from a complicated and protracted conflict combined with climate change, natural disasters, demographic shifts, limited job opportunities, gender equality issues and food insecurity. Food insecurity rose dramatically between 2014 and 2017. In 2019, over 10 million people suffered from acute insecurity. According to estimations, 11,3 million people (37 % of the population) will need humanitarian assistance due to their food insecurity in early 2020. WPF country operation needs for the first six months of 2020 are 195 million US dollars with a remaining funding requirement of 87 million.
