WHAT’S THE ISSUE?
As part of CGTN's focus on poverty alleviation around the world, on this episode of The Agenda with Stephen Cole we have an exclusive interview with the Deputy Executive Director of the World Food Programme, Amir Mahmoud Abdulla.
The WFP has warned that covid-19 means 41 million people on the planet are now at imminent risk of famine - and that the pandemic has pushed more than 54 million people into food insecurity in just one continent - Africa.
So, what can be done to tackle the problem of food poverty? And how can the world’s poorest cope in the midst of a global pandemic?
MEET THE EXPERT:
Amir Mahmoud Abdulla became the Deputy Executive Director of the World Food Programme in March 2009.
He oversees the Regional Directors and leads the implementation of the new corporate architecture aligning WFP’s strategy, human resources, programme structure, financial management, and planning, monitoring and reporting to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals at country level.
