Good episode? Give it some love!
Pierre Krähenbühl is changing the world. As Commissioner General of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) he is leading through a time of extraordinary uncertainty. Over almost 70 years, UNRWA has provided services to Palestine refugees. In the beginning, UNRWA provided care to 750,000 people; today, around 5 million Palestine refugees are eligible for their services. UNRWA is one of the longest-standing examples of the international community working together to promote peace and development and for many decades its staff have found ambitious and innovative solutions to deliver on its mandate. Delegates at the Global Education and Skills Forum in 2019 will hear the Commissioner General talk about why he believes UNRWA still matters, and why the international community should care about its future.
