NGO Working Group on Food & Hunger releases inaugural newsletter

 

The Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations joins other nongovernmental organizations with UN accreditation in work for a just and reliable world food system.  The NGO Working Group on Food and Hunger at the United Nations “recognizes that nearly a billion people in the world are hungry and a billion more suffer from malnutrition.  Therefore, we seek to pursue urgent international action to end the world food crisis. We envision a global food system that ensures a secure and equitable supply of nutritious food, that are produced in environmentally, socially and economically sustainable ways.”

As part of that work, the NGO Working Group on Food and Hunger has developed a newsletter for interested persons.  The inaugural newsletter looks at potash prices, cultured meat, hydroelectricity in the Great Lakes region, food aid, land deals and peak power. 

You can access the newsletter here or go to the NGO Working Group on Food & Hunger webpage.
