Vulnerability, Safety Nets, and the Ultra-Poor. The Role of Food Aid and the Strategic Approach of the World Food Programme.
On the basis of recent theoretical refinements and empirical work on vulnerability, risk management and safety nets, this article examines the approach of the most important multilateral food aid agency – the World Food Programme–in conceptualizing the role that food aid can play at the level of a food-based safety net.
