Rome, 21 December 2000 - Some 28 million people in sub-Saharan Africa are facing severe food shortages as serious food supply problems persist in a number of countries, mainly because of prolonged drought and civil strife, according to a report released today by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

The Clinton administration has built a "forward-looking, informed, and enduring relationship" between the United States and Africa, but the next administration, Congress, and the small but growing constituency in the United States that cares about Africa must "build on this legacy ... to ensure there is no turning back on the road to full partnership."
In her final briefing to the Security Council this afternoon, Sadako Ogata, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, stressed that in most parts of the world where her agency and its partners had to operate, mechanisms to address security problems were slow-moving, unwieldy and not adapted to the new types of conflicts.
"We lived with the times", the High Commissioner for Refugees told the Third Committee (Social, Humanitarian and Cultural) this morning as it met to take up issues related to refugees, including the High Commissioner's report. Sadaka Ogata was describing the legacy of her Office during her 10-year stewardship, saying that despite the challenges, "we always tried to be on the ground with the people in need".
