Secretary-General Kofi Annan, Jan Egeland was at the center of coordinating the United Nation's response and massive international relief efforts during one of the more challenging periods in its recent history.He traveled extensively to the front lines of conflict zones and regions ravaged by natural disasters, consistently acting as an aggressive international spokesman for civilians caught in the crossfire of strife, victims of catastrophes, and displaced people.
