UN Agencies and governments to meet at Oslo summit to tackle expanding humanitarian emergency
FAO is assisting Bolivia in its effort to access financial support for improved water management programs in those areas of the Andean nation that have been hardest hit by prolonged drought.
Drought throughout East Africa has curbed harvests and pushed food prices to unusually high levels, posing special risks for pastoralists. Prices are at record levels in swathes of Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Uganda and Tanzania, according to the latest Food Price Monitoring and Analysis Bulletin.
Failure to act now to make our food systems more resilient to climate change will "seriously compromise" food production in many regions and could doom to failure international efforts to end hunger and extreme poverty by 2030, according to FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva.
