U.S. Ambassador To U.N. Agencies In Rome Discusses Hunger, Food Security In Cambodia

David Lane, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Agencies in Rome, Italy, writes in the U.S. State Department’s DipNote blog about a recent trip to Cambodia, where his delegation examined food security and hunger. “Those of us who cheer the major strides forward in agricultural productivity, and the increasing awareness of the importance of improved nutrition, must not lose sight of the painful reality that far too many still suffer from a basic inability to feed themselves and their families. But hunger is not hopeless: it is solvable. We have the knowledge and the tools to end hunger. With deliberate effort and hard work, we can succeed,” he writes (1/2).
