Is there a broader meaning behind the WFP's Nobel Prize? | Inside Story

This year’s Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to the World Food Programme.
In the public mind, the WFP is often associated with famine relief. But it’s mandate is actually much broader.
It works extensively in war zones and with refugees around the world.

Can the recognition that comes with the Nobel also draw attention to the use of food as a weapon in conflict zones and international efforts to prevent it?

Presenter: Mohammed Jamjoom

Matthew Hollingworth, South Sudan Country Director, World Food Programme.

Emma Leslie, Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies.

Ole Solvang, Norwegian Refugee Council.
