The price of food around the world is set to remain high and volatile according to the new chief of the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

José Graziano da Silva said FAO will increase its support to a number of poor countries which are suffering most from the volatility.

They include countries in Asia, the Sahel region of Africa, as well as the Horn of Africa.

Monica Grayley asked Mr da Silva how the world's poorest people will be fed in 2012.
