Rome, 17 Oct 2013. Deliberations at this year’s Committee on World Food Security focussed on the interlinkage of biofuels and food security. Progressive realisation of the right to adequate food for all was called for as a priority concern in further biofuel development — which should not compromise food security over all and specially consider women and smallholders. The committee viewed it as important to integrate smallholder agriculture aspects into national policies, strategies and research that searches for ways to boost investment and sustainability of human development.
