The world cannot achieve food security and nutrition for all without civil society, according to the Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

Jose Graziano da Silva was speaking to around 200 members of civil society organizations who are in Italy for an international conference on nutrition.

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 805 million people worldwide are chronically hungry, and over 2 billion don't get proper nutrition.

For the second time since 1992, a high-level conference will address nutrition challenges.
