WFP Co-Signs New Accord With EU

ROME -- WFP Executive Director Josette Sheeran on Monday co-signed a new accord between the European Union and the three Rome-based UN agencies --WFP, the Food and Agriculture Organization and the International Fund for Agricultural Development.

Signing the accord at the FAO headquarters in Rome with Sheeran were the heads of IFAD and FAO, and the EU Commissioners for humanitarian aid and for development.  

"When it comes to food and nutrition, we have learnt we cannot address these challenges individually. We have to come together," said Sheeran.
