Pope Francis and G7 agriculture ministers convene at FAO.
Pope Francis joins several G7 agriculture ministers and the European commissioner for agriculture and rural development Phil Hogan to mark World Food Day at Rome's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) on 16 October.
Pope Francis will deliver the keynote speech at FAO on the theme: “Change the future of migration. Invest in food security and rural development”. During his visit the pontiff will unveil a sculpture depicting Alan Kurdî, the three-year-old Syrian boy whose drowning in 2015 has come to symbolise the plight of the world's refugees. The marble sculpture, by Italian artist Luigi Prevedel, has been donated to FAO by Pope Francis.
The event to mark World Food Day will be webcast live and is organised by the United Nation’s Rome-based agencies FAO, the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), and the World Food Programme (WFP).
In addition to informing public opinion about the need to end hunger in our lifetime, the annual event commemorates the anniversary of the founding of FAO in 1945.
