Monaco participated in the first session of the World Food Programme (WFP) Board of Directors meeting from February 27 to March 1, which produced a summary report of four impact evaluations of WFP’s nutrition programmes in the Sahel.

Martine Garcia-Mascarenhas, Deputy Alternate Representative of Monaco to FAO and WFP, highlighted the Principality’s commitment in this programme.

She noted in particular that Monaco has doubled this year the amount of its voluntary contributions to WFP’s support to meet the Sustainable Development Objective No. 2 on food security and nutrition, a priority of the Monegasque Development Cooperation for the period 2018-2020 involving Burundi, Madagascar, Mauritania, and Niger.

At the end of the first session, the Third African School Feeding Day was celebrated, on the sidelines of which Ms Garcia-Mascarenhas met Virginia Villar Arribas, the new Director and Representative of the Office of the WFP in Burundi. The latter welcomed Monaco’s continued support for the Endogenous School Feeding Program in Muyinga Province.
