FAO75 Anniversary Ep3: Ending hunger – still all to fight for

Progress in fighting hunger has gone into reverse – partly as a result of conflict. Nearly 700 million people do not get enough calories to lead full, productive lives. And more than four times that number cannot afford the cheapest healthy diet. In the third and last episode of our podcast marking the 75th anniversary of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), we review the latest thinking on how to finally achieve food security for all – with nutrition, diplomacy, technological advances and environmental sustainability all in play.
