Development – 2014 report on the “State of Food Insecurity in the World” (FAO, WFP and IFAD) (September 19, 2014)

France welcomes the publication of the report on the “State of Food Insecurity in the World,” produced by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the International Fund for Agricultural Development, and the World Food Program.

French Official Development Assistance (ODA)

France’s development policy is part of a renewed framework which combines the fight against poverty and the three aspects of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental. This definition was subject to extensive discussions with all French development actors. It helps to further France’s cultural, diplomatic and economic influence and places special emphasis on the Francophonie.

French cooperation policy aims to address four mutually-supportive issues, whose controlled development is important both to France and its partners:

-  Promoting peace, stability, human rights and gender equality

-  Equity, social justice and human development

-  Sustainable, job-rich economic development

-  Protecting the environment and global public goods
