On December 8, Deputy General Representative of Flanders in the USA, Nicolas Polet, took part digitally in the annual CERF High-Level Pledging Event. He pledged - on behalf of Flanders - 600,000 euros to the UN Central Emergency Response Fund for 2022.
Flanders is again the largest governmental donor beside the UN member states. In doing so, the Government of Flanders wishes to set an example for other governments.
In his speech, the Deputy General Representative of Flanders expressed appreciation for the work of UNOCHA, among others. And also the hope that 2022 will be a year in which the international community can restore trust and hope.
