"Join hands with FAO in its fight against hunger, said Brazilian singer Gilberto Gil upon accepting his nomination as FAO Ambassador on 16 October 2001. "It is not a question of the survival of the fittest. It is a question of survival. Full stop. We need your support," he said.

Mr Gil is a singer, composer and instrumentalist whose music combines bossa nova, samba and funk as well as reggae and other Caribbean rhythms. Mr Gil, who has released more than 30 albums during his 30-year career, has devoted considerable time to social and humanitarian activities in recent years. Even before his appointment as a FAO Ambassador, he had recorded numerous testimonials in support of FAO’s campaign to eradicate hunger in the world.

All over 2002, Gilberto Gil has participated in numerous seminars and round tables in Brazil dedicated to the fight against hunger, and is acting as an active promoter of the "Zero Hunger Project" in his home country.
