2. Mitigation - curbing and reducing greenhouse gas emissions
3. Resilience - anticipating, preparing, and recovering while incurring minimal damages

The Challenge is open to ventures, solution providers and consortiums who will receive financial, technical, and methodological support from the WFP Innovation Accelerator, #SDF, and other partners. Selected innovations will be invited to participate in a fully virtual 4-day WFP Innovation Bootcamp during COP28. Winners will be announced in early 2024.
