Event description
This event is a part of the exhibition Faces of Hunger and Conflict, displayed in UN City Copenhagen.

About this Event

The Danish Foreign Policy Society and The United Nations World Food Programme invite you to a panel debate followed by a display of the photo exhibition Faces of Hunger and Conflict on 23 August from 09:00 – 11:00 at UN City, Copenhagen.

Conflicts are on the rise. Today, an estimated two billion people live in fragile and conflict-affected areas of the world. There are more crises, affecting more people, and lasting longer today than a decade ago. Armed conflict is the most significant obstacle for the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 2, Zero Hunger. There is therefore a clear and urgent need to shift the way, actors like WFP operate in these settings to end needs and to support the UN Secretary-General’s Sustaining Peace Agenda.

A knowledge partnership between WFP and Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) was established to define WFP’s actual and potential contributions to improving the prospects for peace. The event will present findings of the SIPRI research with the aim to increase awareness of the role of food security for building more peaceful societies. It will highlight Denmark’s focus on translating the aspirations of the humanitarian-development-peace nexus into concrete action and cooperation on the ground.
