Description
"Food Security: Focus on Rice"

Enough food is produced in the world today for everyone to be adequately fed. But 800 million people in the developing world do not have enough to eat. Why? Can rice - the staple food of more than half the world's population – become the main ingredient for solving world hunger? Can hunger be fought without first providing better roads and irrigation in the world poorest countries? On this edition of World Chronicle, these questions are discussed with Dr. Jacques Diouf, the Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO).
