Address to Plenary Session of UNHCR Executive Committee - Geneva, Switzerland

Executive Director

The partnership between the World Food Programme and UNHCR goes back nearly two decades - since 1985, in fact, when we signed our first Memorandum of Understanding. That MOU has been revised a number of times since then to build the partnership into what I regard as a strong alliance between our two agencies on behalf of those of particular concern to both of us, especially refugees, the internally displaced and returnees.
