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

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is not directly engaged in disarmament activities. Nevertheless, alarmed by the unprecedented succession of international crises and man-made disasters, as well as by the statements on issues dealing with the fundamental needs of mankind, FAO is pleased to report that in 1982 the Organization made active efforts to contribute to the dissemination of information on the disastrous effects of the arms race. In major policy statements throughout the year the Director-General of FAO has taken every opportunity to condemn the increasing waste of human and financial resources on armaments at a time when the numbers of destitute and hungry people are growing alarmingly.
