World food and agriculture in review

The current world food and agricultural situation is characterized by continued high and volatile international food prices and the persistence of hunger and malnutrition in many parts of the world. This is generating growing concerns about the long-term sustainability of agricultural and food systems. These problems lie at the heart of recent discussions by the G20 Ministers of Agriculture and the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20 Summit), both held in June 2012, which emphasized the need for sustainable growth in agricultural productivity to help eradicate hunger and ensure more efficient use of natural resources.
