Meeting with the EU Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development

Partnering to boost food and nutrition security around the world

30 May 2017, Brussels - FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva met with Neven Mimica, the EU Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development, today on the margins of the European Parliament's Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development. 

Both principals discussed ongoing joint efforts to boost food and nutrition security around the world as well as to foster sustainable agriculture and initiatives to bolster community resilience in the face of disaster, conflict and climate change.
