    who won? of course the hunger (foods?)

    The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) reported that more than one billion people worldwide suffer from hunger daily. The figure, which is impressive, is the SIXTH of the world's population. According to reports, the increase is due in part to the international crisis that has reduced revenues and increased unemployment among the poorest.
    FAO estimates that there will be 11% more hungry. "A dangerous mix of the global economic slowdown combined with high food prices has pushed some 100 million people to chronic hunger and poverty," said director general of FAO, Jacques Diouf. "This silent crisis of hunger is a serious threat to peace and security in the world," the official said. Moreover, he "swiftly forge a broad consensus on the complete and rapid eradication of hunger in the world and take action."
    According to the official, the ideal would be to give poor countries the tools to improve their agricultural production and productivity, because most poor countries this sector is essential to overcome the deficit. Meanwhile, the president of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), Kanayo F. Nwanze stressed that "for most developing countries, there is no doubt that investing in small farmers is the best sustainable safety net, particularly during a time of global economic crisis." The FAO notes that following the progress at 80 'and early 90', hunger has been increasing slowly but persistently.
    The number of hungry people increased between 1995-97 and 2004-06 in all regions EXCEPT IN LATIN AMERICA and THE CARIBBEAN.
    The report, presented in Rome, stressed that most of those who go hungry live in developing countries.
    In Asia and the Pacific there are an estimated 642 million chronically hungry, compared to 265 million in sub-Saharan Africa, 53 million in Latin America and the Caribbean, 42 million in the Middle East and North Africa and 15 million in developed countries.
