Video message by David Nabarro, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General on Food Security and Nutrition during the Roundtable on Food and Nutrition Security and Sustainable Agriculture.

To successfully feed the growing world population, agriculture must be more sparing in its use of natural resources. This radical change of course in global agriculture and food policy is the key demand posed in the Declaration “Nourishing our people — nurturing our planet” by high-ranking representatives of government, international organizations, and the scientific community at a roundtable organized on 15 and 16 March 2012 in New York. The event took place upon the invitation of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), the Swiss Biovision Foundation and the Millennium Institute, with the support of the Mercator Schweiz Foundation and other organizations.
