Invest in food security; end hunger

Vietnam, FAO ink cooperation framework in World Food Day ceremony

The improved monitoring system will virtually support the development of the Agricultural Market System, which will enhance food market transparency and encourage coordination of policy action in response to market uncertainty.

"It is clear that wars and climatic change are a cause of hunger, so let's not present it as if hunger is an incurable disease", Francis said during his key note address. He called for a change in lifestyle and the use of resources, adding it can not be left for other to do.

He spoke about the development of the Global Pact for Safe, Regular and Orderly Migration - the first agreement of its kind being negotiated by governments under the auspices of the UN. Francis drew a standing ovation Monday at the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization, where he marked the U.N.'s World Food Day by calling for governments to work together to tackle the interconnected problems of hunger, global warming and migration. Francis said that the "global pact for safe, regular and orderly migration" that the United Nations is working on calls for "systematic, coordinated intergovernmental action in agreement with the existing worldwide laws".

"What is at stake is the credibility of the whole global system", he added. "Rather, we need to transform it", Graziano da Silva said. Though the pope gave no names, the reference includes the United States, as President Donald Trump announced in June 1 that the country would not be upholding commitments made in 2015 to reduce man-made climate change.

"What good is denouncing that millions of people are victims of hunger and malnutrition because of conflicts if one then does not effectively work for peace and disarmament?" he asked.

Without naming any specific county, the pontiff said it was unfortunate that "some" countries are moving away from the Paris Agreement on climate change.

"It is our intention to address the root causes of migration, such as poverty, food insecurity, inequality, unemployment and lack of social protection".

"We can not resign ourselves to saying, 'Someone else will do it, '" he said.

The Catholic leader's words came on the heels of a recent United Nations report that showed an increase in people suffering from chronic hunger on account of climate change-related disasters and conflicts. He added that with the 2017 celebration themed, "Challenges and opportunities in climate-resilient agriculture for gender equality and the empowerment of rural women and girls", it was pertinent to applaud the role of women in driving sustainable agriculture, as they make up 75 percent of Nigerian farming population, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.
