Country Sheet WFP Tunisia, June 2022 – Tunisia
In June 2022
45 educational staff participated in a workshop on the digitalization of school feeding with the aim of improving its management.
• As part of the joint programming of the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSCDF) 2022-2023, WFP participated in the Thematic Result Group 4 retreat: “Resource management, climate change and resilience to crises and climate risks”, at the beginning of May. Representatives of the seven participating agencies, including the Office of the Resident Coordinator (ORC), the International Labor Organization (ILO), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the United Nations Development Program (UNDP ), UN Women, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Food Program (WFP) discussed how to coordinate the successful implementation of the group’s activities. Each agency presented the mandate of its intervention in the country and its technical and financial partners. These exchanges made it possible to identify complementarities between the agencies and to define an activity plan for 2022-2023. Six priority areas have been identified: (1) water stress, (2) energy challenges and support for the promotion of renewable energies, (3) climate change with impacts on vulnerable populations, (4) the collection of data and evidence generation, (5) promoting agroecology and food security, (6) emergency preparedness and disaster risk reduction.
• WFP has developed a Guide for Primary Educators in Tunisia as part of its nutrition education program aimed at promoting healthy, balanced and diversified diets among school-age children and their families.
• WFP in partnership with the Office des Oeuvres Scolaires (OOESCO) organized a workshop on June 27 on the digitalization of school feeding. This was an opportunity to present two computer tools for the management and monitoring of school canteens. The first tool, developed by OESCO, allows the digitization of the database of students enrolled in the school feeding program in secondary schools and facilitates its management. WFP presented its pilot version of the Last Mile Ecosystem application developed with its partner WeAreMoon which facilitates the management and supply of primary school canteens, linking the production of small farmers to school canteens through a network of transporters, and also facilitating the transport of hot meals from central canteens to satellite canteens.
