Improvements In Food Management Can Lead To Greater Fairness, Justice Globally

Inter Press Service: For the Good of Humanity — Towards a Culture of Caring
Andrew MacMillan, former director of the Field Operations Division of the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)

“…Nowhere is the need for greater fairness more apparent than in the realm of food management — where we face a crazy situation in which, though ample food is produced, the health of more than half the world’s population is now damaged by bad nutrition. … We can already see a renewed FAO in action [under the leadership of José Graziano da Silva] — committed to ending hunger and malnutrition, more focused in its goals, working as one and embracing partnerships for a better present and future. … Hopefully 2015 will be a year in which the world’s leaders will become the champions of the justice and fairness … to which so many of us aspire” (1/13).
