December 12, 2018 : Aga Khan Foundation Canada and WFP host discussion about conflict and food insecurity
David Beasley, executive director of the United Nations (UN) World Food Programme (WFP) and Alex Bugailiskis, Canada’s ambassador to Italy and permanent representative to the Rome-based UN agencies, will facilitate a discussion about interventions to address hunger and conflict. The event is hosted by the Aga Khan Foundation Canada. Beasley will draw from his recent experience with vulnerable women and girls in the Sahel, Bangladesh, Syria, and Yemen.
Conflict is a leading cause of food insecurity, leaving people vulnerable as they are forced to leave their land, homes, and jobs.
