FAO alert: 868 million people in chronic hunger

According to the organization, these are unacceptable figures. It says that abolishing hunger must be a priority for all. The FAO warns that, besides the obvious social costs, malnutrition holds an economic expense that could reach up to 5% of global gross domestic product. In order to avoid this, the application of simple measures would improve the situation. For example, the FAO insists, malnutrition can be fought by giving women greater control over their resources and income, as this would benefit their health and that of their children.The organization also suggests food policies that increase agricultural productivity and measures to improve the nutritional outcome of supply chains, for more affordable, varied and nutritious food.VIC / BBFAO-JM-BNUp:SCar
