The 2020 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to the UN World Food Programme for “efforts to fight hunger and contribute to improving the conditions for achieving peace in conflict regions.”
The World Food Programme (WFP) is the world’s largest humanitarian organization, providing food to about four million people each year. Founded in 1963 as a tool to fight hunger and poverty in developing countries.
This week, the Nobel Committee has already announced the names of laureates in the fields of physiology and medicine, physics, and chemistry, as well as literature. Nobel week will end on October 12, when it will be known who was awarded the award in economics.
The Nobel Prizes are awarded for outstanding scientific research, revolutionary inventions, and major contributions to culture or society. They are named after their founder, Alfred Nobel.
