New book promotes sustainable diets which benefit the planet

Immediate action needed to improve health of humans and the planet

While more than 900 million people worldwide suffer from hunger, nearly double that number—1.5 billion—are overweight or obese, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

The world clearly has a problem with food, but FAO believes the approach to this issue must be changed—and changed quickly—to improve the health of people and the planet.

FAO together with the Rome-based NGO Bioversity International has released a new book that promotes sustainable diets while protecting biodiversity.
