WFP Country Director’s Courtesy Visit to MINEPAT

On July 9, 2024, Alamine OUSMANE MEY, the Minister of Economy, Planning, and Regional Development (MINEPAT), welcomed Wanja KAARIA, the World Food Programme (WFP) Country Director and Representative in Cameroon, for a courtesy visit in Yaoundé.

During the meeting, which lasted over an hour, Wanja KAARIA discussed her four-year tenure in Cameroon and her collaboration with MINEPAT. The primary focus was on the recent Cost of Hunger in Africa (COHA) Study conducted by WFP and MINEPAT’s team.

The Minister and WFP Representative emphasized the importance of finalizing the study report to highlight the improvement of malnutrition in Cameroon. The Multisectoral Technical Team for the COHA Study in Cameroon, coordinated by MINEPAT with technical and financial support from WFP and the African Union Commission, completed the draft report.

This report was reviewed and technically validated by various national sectoral administrations and regional experts from the African Union Commission WFP in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

One of the next steps is the official launch of the COHA study report in Yaoundé. This launch aims to raise awareness among political and economic stakeholders about the challenges of promoting nutritional security in Cameroon.
