The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is currently holding a World Summit on Food Security to agree key actions to tackle the hunger crisis. Global food insecurity has worsened during the last year due to the global economic crisis and continues to represent a serious threat for humanity. The summit gives a new momentum to the fight against hunger and malnutrition affecting over 1 billion people worldwide. Pope Benedict XVI attended the meeting and called for greater understanding of the needs of the rural world.
