Commissioner Kristalina Georgieva is taking part in a high-level discussion on leading the fight against hunger and malnutrition in Niger. This is one of the countries with the highest food insecurity and malnutrition rates, especially among children.
The event on The 3N Initiative "Nigeriens Nourish Nigeriens" will take place at the European Parliament at 18:00. It will look at the political mechanisms which can help link vulnerable communities to support from the local authorities and relief organisations.
The list of participants includes the President of Niger Mahamadou Issoufou, MEP Louis Michel, Commissioner for Development Andris Piebalgs and representatives from the 3N Initiative, the World Food Programme and UNICEF.
