Source text - English In 1946, Sir John Boyd Orr, the first Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organization
(FAO) of the United Nations said, “We cannot build peace on empty stomachs".
Seventy five percent of the world’s 923 million hungry and poor live in rural areas of developing
countries and derive their livelihoods from agriculture. Many of them also live in areas of
conflicts and wars. In conflicts and wars, crops and infrastructures are destroyed, human
resource is diverted or destroyed, and few invest to produce food. Food shortages lead to
hunger and hunger leads to conflicts and wars; thus the vicious circle perpetuates.
Translation - Italian Nel 1946, Sir John Boyd Orr, il primo Direttore Generale della Organizzazione delle Nazioni Unite per l'Alimentazione e l'Agricoltura (FAO) disse: “Non è possibile costruire la pace se ci sono ancora persone che soffrono la fame."
Il 75 per cento dei 923 milioni di affamati e dei poveri del mondo vivono in zone rurali in paesi in via di sviluppo e sopravvivono grazie all'agricoltura. Molto di loro vivono anche in zone di conflitto e guerra. Durante i conflitti e le guerre, le piantagioni e le infrastrutture vengono distrutte, le risorse dell'uomo trasferite o distrutte, e vi sono pochi investimenti per la produzione di cibo. Le carenze alimentari portano alla fame e la fame causa conflitti e guerre, alimentando quindi il circolo vizioso.
