Better Global Governance Important Component Of ‘Achieving Peace And Food Security For All’

Christian Science Monitor: Achieving peace and food security for all
José Graziano da Silva, director general of the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization

“…[H]unger still persists due to two main reasons: At a global level, the poorest populations have limited access to food, not only because of their reduced purchasing power (as they cannot find decent employment) but also because they do not have access to the resources necessary for production (such as water, land, and credit). And at a local level, conflicts that turn into protracted crises continue to flare up. … [I]f we can establish effective political governance at the global level, then the conditions will be in place for FAO to play its part in implementing a global food governance” (1/16).
