Monday, 19 October 2020, Copenhagen, Kingdom of Denmark: HRH The Crown Princess (Mary), Countess of Monpezat, encountered David Beasley, Executive Director for the World Food Programme (WFP) as well as Rasmus Prehn, Danish Minister for Development Cooperation, and had the opportunity to warmly felicitate the WFP on being awarded this years’ Nobel Peace Prize.
WFP was recognised for its efforts to combat hunger, to create better conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas, and for its work to prevent hunger from being used as a weapon in conflicts. During the reunion the Danish partners were briefed about the millions of people forecast to face extreme food insecurity in the coming years, primarily owing to conflict and migration.
The Danish Crown Princess and Minister for Development Cooperation Prehn learnt more about WFP’s strategic plans and work, which is strongly supported by Denmark, during their meeting.
