The Executive Board of the World Food Program (WFP) approved this Tuesday the Strategic Plan for Venezuela 2023-2025, which establishes cooperation in various areas.
This was reported on Wednesday by the Permanent Representation of Venezuela to the FAOon his Twitter social network account.
“Approved by consensus in the @WFP Strategic Plan for #Venezuela 2023-2025 for 573 million 785 thousand 715 dollars,” indicated the Venezuelan representation.
In addition, the message specifies that the cooperation will serve to strengthen school feeding, adaptation to climate change, as well as the empowerment of women, indigenous peoples and people with disabilities.
The approval was given at the First Regular Session of the Executive Board of the World Food Program (WFP), which is being held in Rome, Italy.
From there, the general director of the office of the vice minister for Multilateral Issues of the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry, Gerardo Delgado, ratified the commitment of the Venezuelan Government in the fight against hunger in the country.
Ensure food safety
In his speech, Delgado highlighted: “The joint work between the National Executive and the WFP Office in Venezuela resulted in the conclusion of a document aligned with our national priorities set forth in the National Constitution, our Plan for the Homeland.”
He explained that the instrument will allow the WFP to contribute and complement the social food programs promoted by the Bolivarian Government.
Delgado denounced that Venezuela’s efforts to guarantee food security have been marred by the application of unilateral coercive measures, with enormous effects on all categories of human rights.
The Executive Board of the World Food Program is made up of 36 Member States of the United Nations or the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). WFP’s supreme governing body is responsible for providing intergovernmental support, policy guidance and overseeing the activities of the body in the different countries where it operates, noted Press release.
