Ahmed Warsame has been appointed director of global emergencies, staff security and supply management by the UN’s High Commissioner for Refugees. The Somalia-born humanitarian aid worker has spent most of the past 30 years in areas where some of the world’s worst conflicts have occurred, including south Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda and Pakistan. In the new role based in Geneva, Warsame will help provide protection and assistance to millions of displaced refugees worldwide. Warsame said in all his years working around the world, the scale of the recent refugee crisis that led millions to leave countries in the Middle East for Europe is worse than anything he’s ever seen.
