The World Food Programme (WFP) is the world’s largest humanitarian organization, reaching 80 million people with food assistance in 75 countries each year. WFP operates in many countries, such as Syria, that are involved in complex, protracted crisis.
Join Ertharin Cousin, Executive Director of WFP, as she reflects on the challenges faced by humanitarian agencies working in protracted crises, and the opportunities presented by the Sustainable Development Goals and the World Humanitarian Summit.
Ms. Cousin will be joined by other humanitarian experts for an armchair discussion on how humanitarian development assistance is working to build resilience while addressing urgent needs — drawing on recent experience in Syria. Join us:
