Press release: Civil society organisations have called on governments attending the World Summit on Food Security (16-18 November) to support the use of food reserves as an essential step towards achieving universal food security.
In a letter released at the commencement of the World Summit on Food Security in Rome (Nov 16-18), civil society organisations urge governments to move forward in support of a system of publicly managed food reserves.
Food reserves could play an important role in a longer-term strategy to achieve universal food security if implemented as part of a new international framework for trade and agriculture, finds a study released today by Share The World's Resources.
As the G20 Finance Ministers began two-day London talks on the 4th September, Share the World's Resources joined the Put People First coalition in a day of campaigning and discussion to advocate for a fairer economic and financial system.
