Rome, December 2001
Highlights

Latest information indicates a slightly larger global cereal output in 2001, of 1 870 million tonnes (including rice in milled terms). However, even at this level, production would still be less than the anticipated utilization requirements in 2001/02, leading to a significant draw-down of cereal stocks.

While Afghanistan currently faces a grave food supply situation, food emergencies persist in many other countries (see box on page 6).

Geneva (ICRC) - Today, 17 December 2001, the staff of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) are paying tribute to friends and colleagues killed while bringing aid to victims of war. The date is the fifth anniversary of the assassination of six ICRC delegates at the organization's hospital in the Chechen village of Novye Atagi, but over the years has become a day to honour and remember all ICRC personnel who have lost their lives in the course of their humanitarian work around the world.
