WFP has been entrusted with responding to the needs of people affected by food insecurity and malnutrition. It should be accountable to them for achieving results and for the manner in which programmes are implemented for two principal reasons. First, affected people have a right to be actively involved in the decisions that affect their lives. Ensuring that programmes are accountable to affected people is therefore a key aspect of rights-based programming.
Second, engaging affected people in programme decisions makes food assistance more effective. Basing programmes on the preferences of affected people helps ensure that needs are correctly identified and understood and that programmes are designed in a manner appropriate to the context. Engagement with affected people can also help flag problems in programme implementation early on allowing for adjustments to take place.
