Global chronic hunger 'on the rise'

UN to outline action plan for one billion people who it says are suffering from lack of food security.

    The UN organisation tasked with ending famine and hunger has a new leader.

    José Graziano da Silva has been outlining what needs to be done to help nearly a billion starving people.

    His agency, the UN’s Food and Agriculture organisation, says eradicating hunger is now one of the main global challenges, and da Silva admits the organisation has its work cut out.
