The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP)
WFP is by far GenderConsult longest standing client. Over the years, services have ranged from assessment and planning, to research and analysis, to training design and delivery on GenderConsult's main areas of expertise. Of relevance, we contributed to the kick start of the Safe Access to Fuel and Energy (SAFE) initiative WFP Handbook on Safe Access to Firewood and alternative Energy (SAFE). We assessed the gender and protection implications of UNHCR/WFP cash and voucher initiatives, evaluated cash voucher activities in various contexts, and analyzed the gender aspects of a Food-for-Assets (FFA) projects. More recently, we embarked on the development of the first WFP Emergency Preparedness and Response (EPR) policy, and of a study on the linkages between food insecurity, migration and violence in Central America. Displayed is an example of our graphic work.
