“Feeding the World”

Last February 8th, “The Economist” organized a meeting entitled “Feeding the World” to discuss the world’s capacity to feed 9,000 million people in 2050.

Graziano da Silva, Director-General of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), took part in the meeting.

We can highlight two major considerations in his speech:

  • The impact that it food losses along the food chain has on the world food security.
  • The potential of rural areas and small producers in ending world hunger.

In this regard we invite you to read two documents. The intervention of the Director General of FAO “Keynote” and a report, entitled “Global food Losses and food waste” written by FAO.
