World Food Programme and UN Capital Development Fund Launch New Finance Initiative to Support Zero Hunger

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) have launched WFP BRIDGE, a new, innovative funding mechanism seeking to support diverse efforts to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 2: Zero Hunger (SDG2).

WFP BRIDGE aims to catalyze additional funding for businesses working towards ending hunger in challenging environments and who often struggle to access commercial financing mechanisms. In addition to catalyzing investment for impactful innovations, WFP BRIDGE aims to diversify the overall funding pool for businesses and forge new partnerships between WFP and public and private sector partners.
