India is now a food surplus nation, with strong legislation and policy on ensuring food for all, and is home to the world’s largest food-based safety nets. However the paradox remains that whilst India is no longer food deficit, one in three of the world’s malnourished children lives in India. WFP’s vision of a world where hunger is no longer a reality would be unfeasible without considerable progress in India. In India, WFP is leading action on Sustainable Development Goal 2 (End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture) and moving towards the vision of achieving zero hunger in our lifetime. WFP’s current focus is to help improve the efficiency and effectiveness of India’s food-based social safety nets. This involves innovative solution design, demonstration of impact through a pilot within existing systems, thorough analysis of feasibility and technical support for scale up. This scale up framework has been a result of a process where WFP has been required to develop the roadmap and support in taking an innovation from a pilot impacting a few thousand people to an entire state with a few million people.
