The Director General for Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) Mr.Graziano Silva has given his support to the African Union(AU) to put an end to hunger in Africa, reports NaijaAgroNet.

The support came during the African Union summit that was held in January, 2015 in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, where Heads of State and Government met in respect to the Malobo pledge made in 2014.

Graziano da Silva said that his Organization’s support has been with the African Union ever since they started the journey.

"My presence at the AU summit, where the Malabo implementation strategy and road map have been presented and approved by heads of state, is crucial for FAO, we have accompanied the AU and NEPAD since the beginning of this journey, and will continue to do so until we get a hunger free Africa with the participation of key stakeholders governments, private sector, civil society, youth and women."

The FAO has been in support since the first realization plan of the post Malobo roadmap, and they also attract both public and private sectors to bring solution in putting to stop every factor that could lead to food shortage.
