p>This year’s campaign challenges us to find bold solutions to fight hunger in the following priority areas:
- COVID-19 emergency response
- Local food security and market access for smallholder farmers
- Sustaining and creating livelihoods
- Affordable, nutritious diets and awareness
- Appropriate energy solutions along the food value chain
Of course we are open to other innovative ideas too. Successful teams will be invited to the WFP Innovation Bootcamp in November 2020. After the bootcamp, teams will have the opportunity to apply to our Sprint Programme and may be eligible for up to US $100,000 in equity-free funding, hands-on support and mentorship, and access to a global network of experts.
The WFP Innovation Challenge seeks projects that recognize the importance of gender equality in achieving Zero Hunger, as well as projects that are led by women and have diverse teams. Promoting gender equality in WFP’s work enables food security and nutrition for all.
