Food security and nutrition must be a priority in Small Island Developing States, where climate change, isolation, insufficient land resources and dietary changes that favor obesity are all particular challenges, FAO Director-General Qu Dongyu said at a high-level meeting.
The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) signed a Memorandum of Understanding today, renewing a formal collaboration the two UN agencies began in 1977. It was signed by FAO Director-General Qu Dongyu and UNEP Executive Director Inger Andersen.
