About UN Jobs-IT Operations Officer
WFP Multiple humanitarian crises in Cameroon, one of the RBD Country Offices, have combined to exacerbate the nation’s socioeconomic vulnerabilities; the rise of Boko Haram in the country’s north, a protracted Central African refugee operation in the east, and a separatist war in the northwest and southwest regions have left more than 2.8 million people at risk of food insecurity. A portion of the 3.6M vulnerable individuals who lack access to food in the nation receives regular food aid from WFP, which serves as a crucial emergency response component of the Humanitarian Response Plan. Given the precarious humanitarian situation and the need of providing effective and prompt help, it is essential to ensure proper information technology support to staff, partners, and beneficiaries with the launch of the second-generation strategic plan.
