#ClimateChange can be a direct cause of violence. In #Zambia , WFP helps women smallholder farmers to adapt to changing weather patterns, ensuring they are resilient, powerful, and have enough income to thrive 💪👩🌾 #16Days
As humanitarian emergencies become increasingly prolonged and complex, the role of technology 🖥️📡 in enabling better and faster response is crucial. WFP is exploring the use of #drones 🕹️in its emergency response, particularly in the aftermath of natural disasters.

If WFP can describe on this Twitter thread exactly how $6B will solve world hunger, I will sell Tesla stock right now and do it.
#Ethiopia : Conflict is forcing 1.7 million people in Afar and Amhara into a hunger crisis. WFP is expanding its operations, but we need additional funding to reach millions across Northern Ethiopia with life-saving food. 🎥This is how WFP is supporting displaced communities 👇
WFP is deeply humbled to receive the 2020 #NobelPeacePrize . This is in recognition of the work of WFP staff who put their lives on the line every day to bring food and assistance to more than 100 million hungry children, women and men across the world.
WFP has reached 1.65 million with our 2nd round of food distributions in #Tigray . But our food stocks are running perilously low. More WFP trucks are loaded and waiting to get into Tigray, but unless they arrive soon our next round of distributions may have to be delayed.
❝We didn’t eat for 4 days on the way here. If I hadn’t received this food, I am not sure I would still be here.❞ WFP is responding to the urgent food needs of families like Fatuma's in Afar and Amhara, who are affected by the conflict in Northern#Ethiopia .
WFP is expanding its emergency response in Northern Ethiopia as conflict spreads and 7 million people in #Tigray , #Afar , and #Amhara face hunger. 🔺We urgently need funds to scale up our response and meet the growing needs across Ethiopia:
Abraha, aged 62, lost his livestock during the conflict in #Tigray . He has been suffering from hunger. WFP stores food close to Abraha and his community to respond to their urgent needs as soon as possible. So far this week, WFP has reached 27,000 people in northwest Tigray.
I would like to congratulate the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) on being awarded this year's Nobel Peace Prize for its efforts to combat hunger and improve conditions for peace in regions of conflict.
