This year’s award of the Nobel Peace Prize to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is an important signal in the fight against hunger and poverty. The number of people in need of humanitarian aid worldwide has increased dramatically during the Corona pandemic. Added to this are the effects of the climate crisis, which are destroying the livelihoods of many people. Worldwide, numerous aid organisations are committed to providing help in times of need. But the financial resources are far from sufficient and humanitarians are often themselves exposed to dangers or have no access to people in need. What is needed to take preventive action, what ideas are there for strengthening humanitarian aid and what can Germany do?
Margarete Bause, member of the Bundestag for Bündnis 90/Die Grünen and party’s spokesperson for human rights policy and humanitarian aid, is inviting to the online discussion
Helfen mit Know-How
During the event, she will discuss ideas and innovations in the fight against hunger and poverty with CHA Director Ralf Südhoff and Bernhard Kowatsch, Head of the WFP Innovation Accelerator.
The event will take place in German.
