    Towards Zero Hunger 1945–2030 2017
    This book showcases a unique collection of images documenting how FAO has played a leading role in combating hunger worldwide since 1945. It highlights the Organization’s ongoing efforts to help its Members achieve “zero hunger” in a changing world that is facing new and pressing challenges from migration and climate change. The foreword by the FAO Director-General and the introduction to zero hunger by the Director of the FAO Office for Corporate Communication provide the context for FAO’s work and a real-life example of how “zero hunger” can change people’s lives for the better. In addition, there are profiles of the five recently appointed FAO Special Goodwill Ambassadors for Zero Hunger. Next, the photos and their captions, with some accompanying text, illustrate FAO’s work and significant moments in its history. Thus, the reader can see the single frames in the context of the whole picture.

    Les ambassadeurs de bonne volonté de l’Organisation des Nations Unies 2008
    Le Programme des Ambassadeurs de bonne volonté de la FAO a pour but de promouvoir la vision de la FAO d’un monde libéré de la faim. Il distingue des hommes et des femmes de talent et de passion qui ont souhaité contribuer à attirer l’attention du public et des médias sur les objectifs nobles de l’Organisation des Nations Unies pour l’alimentation et l’agriculture: un monde libéré de la faim. Depuis le lancement du programme en 1999, ces nominations ont eu pour but de reconnaître l’importance du rôle joué par des personnalités pour promouvoir la sécurité alimentaire et transmettre le message que l’amélioration de la sécurité alimentaire n’est pas uniquement l’affaire des gouvernements. Le progrès s’appuie aussi sur la détermination des citoyens à utiliser leurs talents pour inspirer les bonnes volontés et stimuler l’engagement politique. Grâce à leur talent et leur influence, les Ambassadeurs de bonne volonté la FAO entraînent jeunes et moins jeunes, riches e t pauvres dans la lutte contre la faim et la pauvreté, à un moment crucial où l’explosion des prix des denrées alimentaires provoque une crise alimentaire mondiale. J’invite chaque personne à s’engager et à se joindre aux Ambassadeurs de bonne volonté de la FAO afin d’aider les plus déshérités de la planète à rompre le cercle vicieux de la faim et de la sous-alimentation chronique.

    FAO, UNICEF and WFP have issued a joint position paper providing an overview of the food security, malnutrition and livelihood situation in the Sahel and calling for early action to respond to the most pressing needs. The analysis includes the latest data available following the November 2017 Cadre Harmonisé (CH) exercise. In the past months, several factors have exacerbated the food security and nutrition situation for specific livelihood groups including pastoralists in the first place. The majority of the vulnerable populations is likely to be similarly affected during the upcoming lean season. To address the immediate needs of the most vulnerable over the next twelve months, FAO, UNICEF and WFP have developed a common programmatic approach which also aims to address longer-term structural challenges. Timely support from all partners including donors can help mitigate the current and foreseen deterioration of the situation in the Sahel. This is also key to break the vicious circle of chronic hunger and malnutrition affecting millions of vulnerable people in this region.
