But guess what?! It’s not ok!

What’s FAO?

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) provides food security and healthy living conditions for all the people world wide. It was founded in 1945 and its head office is in Rome. This organization collaborates with the World Food Programme (WFP) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD). The main concern of these three bodies is to eliminate poverty and hunger.

Discussing about water, food and other world wide matters during FAO committee session

One of the most common problems, in the developing countries, is food and how to get it. The delegate of Kuwait, during a moderate caucus, proposed to improve the watering crops plan so the number of goods available for all the population increases, especially the less advanced part of it. The problem is not for the biggest states, such like Germany, America or Switzerland, but regards closer the less developed ones.

Kuwait extended its requests saying that it could be possible to introduce recycled plastic containers with the purpose of protecting crops from bugs and hostile climate conditions; it is not dangerous for the environment and it contributes reducing garbage over the whole territory. Another problem discussed  was water pollution and how water might be purified. Actually it’s not possible to establish purified water transport network to bring water into the various villages but the delegates discussed about how underground water may be extracted.

The delegate of UK expressed its will to finance the previous projects so he can provide economic support to the developing countries. After that, the topic of FAO committee session moved to how to help women at least during pregnancy and breastfeeding period. The german delegate suggested providing psychological and physical support and, obviously healthy food and medicines especially for pregnant women and little children. After the german delegate had finished, the british one expressed her availability to finance and to contribute economically and physically at this project. At the end of the committee session all the delegate voted for the diverse amendments on the floor: increasing the watering of crops; introducing recycled plastic containers in agricultural field to protect goods from bugs and climate conditions; extracting purified water from the underground without damaging the environment; providing support for the neediest part of the population, especially for pregnant women. In conclusion all the amendments passed and ideas to do something for the less developed populations seemed to be in the air.
