World Food Programme boosts Global Cooperation on Humanitarian Drone Use

To ramp up engagement from leading public, private and academic experts, WFP have launched a platform  to facilitate the safe and ethical use of this emerging technology. The new site complements wider response activities across the humanitarian community and draws on knowledge and experience to document and explore drone use cases, including post-disaster assessment, in-air connectivity and crop monitoring.

WFP is well positioned to develop, coordinate and implement the standardized, safe and ethical use of drones for its own operations as well as those of its partners.
