Programme Advisory Committee

Experts ensure the quality of our project work

The Committee advises Welthungerhilfe's Board of Directors on matters concerning programme policy and the funding merits of programmes and projects. The consultants can also carry out a review at short notice. This independent expertise from the world of science and practice helps to ensure the quality of our projects.
