Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (April 2022): The World Food Programme (WFP) is the world’s largest humanitarian organization, whose mission is to use food assistance to help people recover from conflict, disasters, and the effects of climate change. “Hunger should be a thing of the past in a world of plenty,” their motto says.
The WFP is governed by its executive board, which consists of 36 UN/FAO member countries. Ethiopia was recently added to this administrative body, as the Permanent Mission of Ethiopia to the United Nations tweeted on April 15.
The board’s responsibilities include providing transnational assistance, policy advice, and oversight of WFP activities. With the current Russia-Ukraine conflict wreaking havoc on the global food supply, the board—of which Ethiopia is now a member—must work together to expand its reach to crisis-hit countries.
