The 2020 Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to the World Food Programme (WFP) for its efforts to combat hunger, for its contribution to bettering conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas and for acting as a driving force in efforts to prevent the use of hunger as a weapon of war and conflict.On this happy occasion Richard Ragan, Representative and Country Director of WFP in Bangladesh, invited Farah Kabir, Country Director of ActionAid, Asif Saleh, Executive Director of BRAC and Ambassador Espen Rikter-Svendsen, to a conversation on the implications of this award for the WFP’s work in Bangladesh. The conversation spanned food security, nutrition and humanitarian relief, as well as ambitions and efforts to reach the UN Sustainable Development Goal 2 on ending hunger around the world.
