WFP China COE;Four Thematic Areas;Zero Hunger;Partnership;Knowledge Sharing

WFP Centre of Excellence for Rural Transformation (WFP China COE) was established in March 2016. It endeavours to share China's rich experiences in food security, nutrition improvement, and poverty alleviation with other developing countries by facilitating policy dialogue and research, technical training, and field-level engagement in pursuit of Agenda 2030 and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly SDG 2 for Zero Hunger and SDG 17 on Partnerships.


WFP China COE's engagement aligns with and operates within the framework of the approved UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework and the WFP's Strategic Plan. In line with WFP South-South and Triangular Cooperation Policy, WFP China COE promotes two-way knowledge exchange and partnership building among developing countries, while leveraging WFP's global network and ongoing programmes against food insecurity and malnutrition.


WFP China COE incorporates gender considerations and encourage women's participation in South-South and Triangular Cooperation, flagging women empowerment in rural transformation and poverty alleviation.


WFP China COE works in the Four Thematic Areas:


Digitalised South-South Cooperation and smart technologies underline enhanced knowledge sharing and know-how transfer; the web-based WFP-China South-South Cooperation Knowledge Sharing Platform and the Cloud School are both in operation for this purpose.
