Rabat - Morocco was elected on December 2, 2020, in Rome, member of the Board of Directors of the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) following its appointment by the African Regional Group to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

The Kingdom of Morocco was chosen by the FAO Council alongside five other countries (Brazil, Guatemala, Denmark, Norway, and Hungary) to be a member of the WFP Executive Board for a three-year term from January 1, 2021, to December 31, 2023.

The election of the Kingdom to one of the most important players in global humanitarian action is a sign of the great international consideration shown towards solidarity initiatives and concrete and high impact actions carried out under the enlightened leadership of His Majesty King Mohammed VI in favor of disaster-stricken populations throughout the world, victims of conflicts, health crises and natural disasters.

It is also a recognition of the expertise developed by Morocco in the areas of governance and management of the various phases related to the implementation of humanitarian aid policies and programs in the world.

The Executive Board is WFP's supreme governing body.  Comprising 36 States Members of the United Nations or Member Nations of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Board provides intergovernmental support, policy direction and supervision of the activities of WFP.

Thanks to its humanitarian vocation and its unwavering and recognized commitment to international solidarity, the Kingdom will be able, over the next three years, to make a substantial contribution to the activities of the WFP Executive Board and fully assume its responsibilities to ensure the achievement of the objectives of this organization, namely, first and foremost, a world without hunger.

The World Food Programme (WFP) is the leading humanitarian organization saving lives and changing lives, delivering food assistance in emergencies and working with communities to improve nutrition and build resilience.
