ROME - 26 April 2018: Egyptian Ambassador to Italy and Permanent Representative to UN Organizations in Rome Hisham Badr said the UN World Food Program (WFP) supports Egypt's 2018-2023 plan for food security with 454 million dollars.
The plan was highly praised at a session of unofficial consultations that was held in Rome to discuss its layout.
In statements on Thursday, Badr said that the WFP deputy executive director lauded the Egyptian government's support for the WFP activities in Egypt.
He underlined that WFP's Egypt country strategic plan for the period 2018–2023 aims at providing access to adequate food all year round for food-insecure and most-vulnerable children and families in targeted areas of Egypt.
The plan also covers food-insecure refugees, displaced populations and host communities in Egypt.
The plan also backed the Egyptian government to enable it to enhance its capacity to target and assist vulnerable populations and share its experience with selected countries to achieve zero hunger by 2030.
