 International Workshop: Food Security and Crisis in Countries Subject to Complex Emergencies, September 23-25 2003, Tivoli, Italy

"The frequency and severity of devastating droughts, floods and storms have increased dramatically. So too have the destruction and human suffering caused by civil strife and the collapse into chaos of countries shattered by what have come to be called complex emergencies...The world may never be free from disaster. But we can improve our ability to prepare, respond and rebuild."

Jacques Diouf, Director-General, FAO
