Graziano da Silva, new FAO Director-General

José Graziano da Silva, who has recently taken the helm of FAO, will push for a renewed focus on food security. He underlines that FAO “will create teams that draw together the Organization's skills in policy advice, investment planning, resource mobilization, emergency response and sustainable development".
Furthermore, the new FAO Director-General stresses that hunger eradication should be linked to other global challenges' responses “such as reviving national economies, protecting natural resources from degradation, and mitigating and adapting to climate change”.
Graziano da Silva will focus on the eradication of hunger; sustainable food production and consumption; and greater fairness in global food management. Moreover, he will aim for the conclusion of FAO's organizational reform to improve efficiency, transparency and accountability.  Some other goals will be the expansion of partnerships and South-South cooperation.
