Dr. David Nabarro, Special Representative of the UN Secretary General for Food Security and Nutrition and Coordinator of the UN High Level Task Force, discusses how the United Nations is addressing food security and nutrition issues in this interview with Farming First.
Nabarro looks out to various groups from the agricultural, health and development communities to come together in what he describes as a “movement” to address malnutrition, especially for young children. He calls this “one of the best investments we can make”.
Malnutrition affects one billion people globally, and the UN High Level Task Force aims to respond to this challenge through comprehensive and coordinated understanding and action.”
