WFP is the largest humanitarian organization providing emergency food assistance to people in need. In light of major crises with a strong urban dimension in the past decade, WFP has significantly expanded its capacity and operational footprint in urban areas.
The ICRC helps people affected by conflict and armed violence and promotes the laws that protect victims of war. It operates worldwide, including in urban areas where the human cost of armed conflict and violence is innumerable.
Headquartered in Geneva, IFRC works with all National Red Cross/Crescent Societies to provide humanitarian assistance in non-conflict situations (e.g., disasters, health emergencies), which increasingly occur in urban contexts.
