Strategic effect : Refugees, displaced persons and vulnerable populations in Ecuador can meet their basic food and nutritional needs throughout the year (according to WFP strategic result 1 and goal 2.7 of the National Plan for Good Living).
Strategic effect : Small farmers in the selected areas, especially women, increase their income permanently and improve their productivity by 2021 (according to WFP strategic result 3 and goal 10.4 of the National Plan for Good Living).
Strategic effect : Communities and people suffering from food insecurity living in areas very vulnerable to climate change, as well as government institutions, have a strengthened capacity to adapt to climate change by 2021 (according to WFP strategic result 4 goal 7.10 of the National Plan for Good Living).
Strategic effect : National institutions and programs in Ecuador, including social protection programs, receive support to reduce food insecurity and malnutrition by 2021 (in line with WFP strategic result and goals 3.6 and 3.11 of the Plan National for Good Living).
