Social protection and safety nets is WFP’s largest focus area for South-South and triangular exchanges worldwide. <br />
<br />
The Dominican Republic’s Progresando con Solidaridad programme represents an excellent and innovative example of how to optimize an existing national social protection scheme and make it highly nutrition-sensitive.<br />
<br />
While a number of social protection schemes around the world may have a single nutrition component, Progresando con Solidaridad is innovative for the comprehensive range of nutrition components that are embedded in the programme. For example, the programme includes nutrition education; community nutrition networks and distribution of micronutrient powders and specialized nutritious food to children under the age of 5, to pregnant and lactating women and to the elderly.<br />
<br />
Its nutrition intervention component was first targeted to all children aged 6-59 months of beneficiary families, who were identified as living in moderate and extreme poverty. After 2013, the nutrition intervention was extended to children under the age of five, pregnant and lactating women and the elderly benefitting from the programme. <br />
<br />
An evaluation of the nutrition component of the Progresando con Solidaridad programme (2013), highlighted a 50 percent reduction in anaemia prevalence in children enrolled in the programme. Progresando con Solidaridad programme was selected as a successful case study at the Global Forum on Nutrition-Sensitive Social Protection in September 2015. The Forum is a South-South learning platform facilitated by the WFP Centre of Excellence against Hunger in Brazil, which promotes South-South and triangular cooperation and aims to facilitate exchanges of lessons learned on social protection programmes across the developing world. Over 150 participants from 20 countries joined the Forum and learnt from the Dominican Republic’s experience.<br />

The vulnerability of rural communities in Guatemala is directly related to the adverse effects of climate change, which affects their nutrition and food security. <br />
<br />
To increase resilience against climate change and productivity of smallholder farmers in Guatemala, the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) helped the Government to strengthen its efforts to develop the production and consumption of crops biofortified with nutrients lacking in the Guatemalan diet. <br />
<br />
This effort was supported through technical assistance from Chile’s Institute for Agricultural Development in partnership with a local NGO called “Semilla Nueva”. <br />
<br />
The goal of this solution was to improve the living conditions in Guatemala’s rural areas of Jalapa and Jutiapa and overcome hunger, malnutrition and poverty through productive promotion of biofortified crops. <br />
