The World

Director General Edouard Saouma of the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization accused Third World governments of dressing up their cities as modern showcases while neglecting food production and the rural poor. In an address marking World Food Day, Saouma called the mass movement of young people to the cities in developing nations a major cause of world hunger. Governments, he said, go into debt to encourage manufacturing and service industries and “to present the outside world a facade.”
