The idea that to end hunger we must decide to invest in the poorest is now widely accepted by all the countries of the world, Graziano da Silva said in Rome.
Political will is the fundamental and necessary ingredient to eradicate hunger and all forms of malnutrition – including overweight and obesity – in Latin America and the Caribbean, FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva said.
“The idea that to end hunger we must decide to invest in the poorest is now widely accepted by all the countries of the world,” Graziano da Silva said at an event on how to move from commitment to action to achieve Zero Hunger held during the 41st session of the FAO Conference, the Organization’s highest governing body.
The FAO Director General explained that Latin America and the Caribbean, until recently considered a global example in the fight against hunger and malnutrition, tackled the issue with a comprehensive package of social measures that include cash transfer programs to facilitate access to food for the poorest and most vulnerable people.
