New humanitarian food security platform launched
The United Nations food agencies — FAO and the World Food Programme (WFP) — have launched a food security platform to improve the coordination of food security responses in humanitarian crises.
The Food Security Cluster — led by the two organizations — is based in Rome. Its work is spearheaded by a small global unit led by Graham Farmer, the newly appointed Global Cluster Coordinator. The global support team includes FAO, WFP, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and other humanitarian organizations.
"The support of the NGOs and the International Red Cross/Red Crescent Movement has been vital in setting up the Global Food Security Cluster," said FAO Deputy Director-General (Operations), Changchui He.
