17 November 2014, Rome--- Civil-society organizations are key players in this week’s global nutrition conference, as they are tasked with making sure political promises are kept, FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva said today. More than 90 ministers and hundreds of government officials will attend ICN2, which starts Wednesday and is scheduled to end Friday. The intergovernmental conference has been called to promote awareness of nutritional deficiencies – including the growing incidence of obesity in countries across the income spectrum - at the policy level.
