To be effective, innovation and technology should allow the people we serve to unlock their true potential.

When people’s lives are hit by conflict, disaster or famine, every second and every mile can be the difference between life and death. For decades, WFP has used innovation and technology to shorten the difficult last mile it travels to reach people in need. What’s new are the speed, scale and partnerships with which we are bridging that gap to bring people food security, stability and opportunities for sustainable development. This is the first in a four-part series revealing how innovation and technology have helped WFP to serve 90 million people and become a Nobel Peace Laureate in the midst of a global pandemic.
