On 12 August 2018, the World Food Programme (WFP) Regional Pacific Food Security Cluster Coordinator deployed to Vanuatu for a two week period, supporting the Vanuatu Food Security and Agriculture Cluster’s Ambae volcano response operations on Maewo island and in response to a request from the Vanuatu Ministry of Agriculture. 

During the deployment, the Coordinator conducted a rapid food needs assessment.  The assessment will support the Vanuatu Cluster’s intermediate and long-term planning, for activities on Maewo engaging both host communities and evacuees.

The assessment results will be available in early September 2018.
