Opening statement to WFP Executive Board October 2007 - Rome, Italy (22/10/07)

Executive Director Josette Sheeran

This is a time of great challenge, but also great opportunity, and, most importantly, a time of hope - not only for WFP, but for people across our planet. I will talk about challenge, opportunity and hope, and assess WFP’s position and role – as a key player in the UN’s efforts to break the cycle of hunger, meet the Millennium Development Goals and the humanitarian needs of the most vulnerable.
