The award was given to the WFP in recognition of its contribution to the fight against hunger, the Norwegian Nobel Committee said. They say the WFP has acted as a driving force in the fight against hunger as a weapon of war and conflict.

“This is a moment of pride,” a WFP spokesman said in response to the Norwegian Nobel Committee’s announcement of the winner of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abi Ahmed Ali won the Nobel Peace Prize last year. He was awarded the prize for peace and international cooperation.

The Nobel Prize is worth 10 million Swedish kronor.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee is responsible for selecting the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize. All Nobel Prizes were announced in Stockholm, Sweden, but the Peace Prize was announced in Oslo, Norway. The work was done in accordance with the will of Alfred Nobel.
