WFP has a proven track record in Zimbabwe of providing food aid and managing supply chains during emergencies, all the while enhancing shock resilience in vulnerable areas. A roadmap is provided by the country strategic plan (CSP), which runs from July 2022 to December 2026, to encourage shock-responsive social protection and resilient, sustainable food systems.

The period of time between July 2022 and December 2026 outlines cooperative initiatives to better predict future demands, enhance data and forecasts, and support local livelihoods and capacities to endure, respond to, and adapt more quickly to sudden or ongoing shocks.

WFP will assist Zimbabwe in making well-informed decisions about food security and nutrition, and it will incorporate nutrition, gender equality, protection of vulnerable groups, youth participation, technological innovation, and decentralized zero hunger action throughout the strategy. WFP will establish new partnerships and leverage existing ones to their full potential, including those with the other Rome-based and other United Nations agencies.
