World must cooperate on food policy
Issued on: Modified:
Today is international World Food Day. A report published by Action Against Hunger calls on countries to increase the quality of food production, not only the quantity. Hunger and malnutrition remain global problems. Some countries, including the three mentioned in the report, are beginning to have national policies that focus on the nutritional quality of their agricultural sector. Nutrition expert Etienne du Vachat says international organisations and donors must now work with governments to put good policies into action.
