The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations ( FAO) Director General Qu Dongyu and the G20 Presidency, Italy's Minister of Foreign Affairs, Luigi Di Maio, spoke after the G20 meetings held in Matera in Italy, highlighting needs and actions to eradicate hunger and poverty.
The G20 Foreign Affairs and Development Ministers and FAO - through the Matera Declaration - encouraged "partners and stakeholders to collaborate with or join the Food Coalition launched by FAO whose goal is to build a global alliance to trigger coordinated action in response to COVID-19, with a focus on the thematic priorities identified in this Matera Declaration around food security, nutrition and food systems, and to mobilize political, financial, policy and technical support based on needs and demands of developing countries, with a focus on smallholder farmers, women and youth."
Proposed by the Government of Italy and led by FAO, the Food Coalition is a multi-stakeholder, multi-sectoral mechanism that aims to mobilize political, financial and technical assistance in support of countries affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
