General Assembly President Calls for a Re-Evaluation of Global Food Policies

April 7, 2009: The President of the General Assembly, Miguel D'Escoto, called for a new "politics of food."

“We need to have an approach to food production that is multi-functional, that has a concern for the poor and their right to food, a concern for the earth and its right to life, a concern for communities and their right to self-governance,” Miguel D’Escoto said, as he opened a dialogue on the topic taking place in New York."
