In response to the goals set by world leaders under the SDGs, the World Food Programme (WFP), which is the food arm of the United Nations, adopted SDGs 2 and 17. In the Republic of Chad in Central Africa, WFP has worked with both the central and local governments as well as other agencies and NGOs to achieve these goals. In doing so, WFP established 13 field offices in the country and signed various MOUs with partners and government institutions. These arrangements that aim to achieve zero hunger (SDG 2) and help with capacity development among various institutions are covered under a number of project areas such as emergency food distribution, seasonal assistance to vulnerable communities, emergency school feeding, nutrition focused activities and supporting vulnerable communities to build against various shocks. In addition, supply chain management and capacity development of our partners and government institutions play a major role. These activities are carried out in the Lake Chad Province, which is the focus of this discussion as well as other provinces of the country.

My name is Ndeley Agbaw and I was born in Cameroon where I did my early education. I then continued my studies at Eastern Connecticut State University before undertaking an internship at the UN that was organized by the BIC. Thereafter I served as a volunteer as the BWC in Haifa before going to Angola where I began my UN career. I have worked with the WFP in various capacities since 1992 in various countries and presently based in Bol, Lake Province in Chad as Head of the WFP Field Office.
