The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is building the capacities of countries in the global community to address migration problem around the world.

 

FAO Country Representative Marc Abdala said the above when he addressed the program marking World Food Day (WFD) at the Ministry of Agriculture Program Management Unit (PMU) in Fendell outside Monrovia recently.

The program was held under the theme: “Change the Future of migration, invest in food security and rural development.”

Abdala pointed out hunger, the lack of food security and poverty, among others, as factor that cause global migration which, he said, FAO has an obligation to fight and promote sustainable use of natural resources.

“FAO has a unique role to play in reducing rural migration in view of its experience in supporting the creation of better conditions and resilient livelihoods in rural areas,” he added.

He said that is why the organization is working to build the capacities of governments, UN agencies, the private sector, civil society organizations and local communities in order to generate evidence to address such global phenomenon.

Abdala stated that the drivers and impacts of migration are intimately linked to FAO’s global goals of fighting hunger and achieving food security, reducing rural poverty and promoting sustainable use of natural resources.
