Silo-Based Approach To Development Will Undermine Food Security, Nutrition Goals

The Guardian: People first: green goals should not override ending hunger
Shenggen Fan, director general at the International Food Policy Research Institute

“…Continuing a silo-based approach to sustainable development will undermine the food security and nutrition of poor people and vulnerable groups. … The post-2015 development agenda must work to achieve the goals of environmental sustainability, food security and improved nutrition. A people-focused approach will require concerted action to maximize synergies and minimize trade-offs, but ultimately, it can lead to wins for all — especially poor people and vulnerable groups. We can no longer afford to work in silos if we want to achieve truly sustainable development” (5/6).
