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).

Press Release

The Economic and Social Council began debate this morning on United Nations efforts to provide special economic, humanitarian, and disaster relief assistance, hearing contentions by field experts and national delegations that more funding had to be found for such responses and for resources to be provided well after humanitarian and natural catastrophes had faded from the headlines.

There is little benefit in providing food if people are still to die of meningitis, malaria, measles or childbirth.
