Institution - World Food Day by FAO

World Food DayThe World Food Day organized by FAO in Rome has put great attention on the role of sustainable bioenergy within the global effort to reduce poverty and fight global warming. Jatropha has been seen as a promising crop in particular for Developing countries. At the same time, the need for further research and collaboration between stakeholders for the definition and adoption of sustainable practices has been addressed.

“On this World Food Day, I urge Governments, organizations and citizens to forge meaningful partnerships to overcome these challenges so that we can meet all of our Millennium Development Goals and, ultimately, usher in a world free of hunger and poverty.”


Ban Ki-moon
Secretary-General, United Nations
