Clinton Calls for Global Commitment to Sustainable Agriculture

Washington--Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called for the world to step up its commitment to sustainable agriculture and take swift action to halt the steady rise in food prices.

“We must act now, effectively and cooperatively to blunt the negative effect of rising food prices,” Clinton said in a speech to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization in Rome on Friday. “We must redouble our commitment to sustainable agriculture and food security and we must improve our coordination within and across all organizations.”
