Ms. Ertharin Cousin, the Executive Director of WFP responded formally to our letter last week. She raised fundamental problems associated with the usefulness of INTERFAIS in the wake of changing technology and food assistance modalities among others. TAFAD’s input is also welcomed by the WFP in┬áthe search for a new, more effective tool of reporting international food assistance transactions. The letter from Ms. Cousin is available in the Member Access library.
