Number of world's hungry to top 1 billion this year – UN food agency

- The urban poor will likely be hardest hit by the global recession

- Many of the world's hungry are smallholder farms who have the potential to feed themselves and also boost global food security, said Kanayo F. Nwanze, President of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).

“To unleash this potential and reduce the number of hungry people in the world, governments, supported by the international community, need to protect core investments in agriculture so that smallholder farmers have access not only to seeds and fertilizers but to tailored technologies, infrastructure, rural finance, and markets,” he added.
