Roundup: Italy marks World Food Day, anniversary of FAO_china.org.cn

On this World Food Day (October 16), it has been announced that Ireland will contribute €1 million to next autumn's UN Food Systems Summit.

Large population displacements today present complex challenges that require action on a global scale.

"There should be food security towards nutrition and improved overall well-being; There should be deliberate effort to ensure that the Government at all levels budget adequately for agriculture and all food security interventions".

"We must note that food & nutrition security must be safeguarded, as nutrition can not wait".

The Ministry of Agriculture organised the function.

World Food Day is celebrated in many countries around the world and focuses on seven different thematic areas depending on each year, forests, agriculture, livestock, food loss and waste, natural resources, fisheries, and food systems. "Our actions are our future". According to Arif Husain, chief economist at the United Nations World Food Programme, "the pandemic has doubled the number of people who are acutely food insecure, from 135 million people in 2019 to 270 million". The groups came together in a bid to reverse rising rates of hunger, which is responsible for almost half of all child deaths, and now threatens to claim the lives of 10,000 more children each month due to the secondary impacts of COVID-19.

The premier once again called upon all to bring every inch of land under cultivation to ensure food security as many countries in the world might face food shortage.

The event marks the highest priority accorded by the government to agriculture and nutrition and is a testament of the resolve to completely eliminate hunger, undernourishment and malnutrition.

Furthermore, the 2020 World Food Day presents an opportunity to express gratitude to farmers and workers across the food supply chain, whom the organization referred to as the Food Heroes, who regardless of the circumstances, continue to provide food to their communities and even beyond.

"People are hungry, and they need our help", said Brown.

Bangabandhu had allocated Tk 101 crore out of Tk 500 crore in agriculture for ensuring food security for all, she recalled.

- Only a pinch of the actual requirement given to children in Jamshedpur - 91% mothers from Jamshedpur feel that importance of protein increases with increasing age and 80% feel that children can not digest protein rich food as easily as adults do and 82% believe supplements aren't meant to be given to children.

Meanwhile, the import of cereals only accounts for 2 percent of domestic production every year, it said.

It is also important that we continue to remind ourselves of the importance of also achieving global food security and motivate ourselves to respond to the challenge with foresighted solutions.

Mentioning that the country has faced cyclone and flood amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the Prime Minister said, "The people of Bangladesh is very fearless and they have the ability to face any situation".

As the United Nations agency celebrated its 75th anniversary, Pope Francis told staff and members, "Your mission is attractive and important, because you are working to defeat hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition".
