Activities of the food and agriculture organization of the United Nations related to disarmament

The World Food Conference, which was held at Rome from 5 to 16 November 1974, considered the question of reducing military expenditures for the purpose of increasing food production. Most speakers pointed to the enormous disproportion between military expenditures and the current goals of agricultural development aid and called for the allocation of the sums so released to the financing of food production in developing countries and the establishment of emergency reserves. The Conference adopted resolution XIV, in which it called on the States participating in the Conference to take the necessary measures for the most rapid implementation of the resolutions of the General Assembly and other organs of the United Nations pertaining to the reduction of military expenditures for the purpose of development, and to allocate a growing proportion of the sums so released to the financing of food production in developing countries and the establishment of reserves to deal with emergency cases.
