Luxembourg’s co-chairmanship of the Donor Support Group (DSG) of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) for the 2021-2022 cycle concluded with the DSG’s annual meeting in Luxembourg, from 31 May to 1 June 2022, co-chaired by Manuel Tonnar, Director for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Affairs, and Robert Mardini, the ICRC’s Director-General.
In order to meet the many humanitarian challenges that have become more significant in 2022, Luxembourg has drawn on its close partnerships with international agencies, which make it possible to provide tailored responses to different crisis situations. Consequently, Luxembourg was able to start its new strategic partnership framework with the World Food Programme (WFP), which supports people affected by food insecurity.
