Food for thought: 50% of Pakistanis ‘food insecure’, says FAO
Despite Pakistan being one of the major food producing
countries in the world, 50% of its population is food insecure, said a
top representative of the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture
Organisation (FAO) to Pakistan, Patrick Evans.
He noted this on Tuesday while speaking at the 7th International
Development Conference organised jointly by Sustainable Development and
Policy Institute (SDPI), FAO, IFAD and WFP.
