The amount of food required for a country depends on the population of that country. For example in Niger, currently suffering hunger, the population is growing very rapidly with a fertility rate ( average number of babies a woman bears) of 7.
The UN should give help in family planning in all countries which have a high fertility rate.
This thematic discussion was led by FAO and WFP in collaboration with “The World We Want”.
The consultation was facilitated by the Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition (FSN Forum)
