New FAO Chief's Top Priority - Eradicating World Hunger

FAO Director-General (2012-2015)
José Graziano da Silva
On 3 January 2012, the FAO issued a press release stating that its new Director-General José Graziano da Silva had decided that his top priority would be "the total elimination of hunger and undernourishment from the world."

According to Graziano da Silva, under his tenure the FAO would "begin by scaling up its support to a number of low-income, food deficit countries, especially those facing prolonged crises."

Graziano da Silva's other top priorities include:
  • move towards more sustainable systems of food production and consumption; 
  • achieve greater fairness in the global management of food; 
  • complete FAO's reform and decentralization; 
  • expand South-South cooperation and other partnerships.
