Graça Machel calls for disrupting the agricultural sector to achieve Zero Hunger

by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

Delivering the McDougall Memorial Lecture on food security at the opening of the 41st Session of the FAO Conference on the challenges and opportunities of reaching Zero Hunger, Graça Machel – an international advocate for children’s and women’s rights – condemned “the shameful failure of global governance to address issues of food security, forced migration and equitable economic development” as well as the failure of governance at country level to allocate sufficient resources to address the root causes of poverty.
