ISLAMABAD (PR) – The Brazilian Embassy, The Ministry of National Food Security and Research, the WFP, FAO and SDPI organised a full-day seminar on Food Security and Poverty Alleviation at a local hotel. Brazilian experts and a WFP expert came from Brazil especially for the occasion, to share their experiences and the main features of the vastly successful Brazilian policies on Food Security. The main goal of the event was for them to address the characteristics of the Brazilian Zero Hunger Programme (“Programa Fome Zero”), a public programme that helped lifting more than 40 million Brazilians from poverty and that served as model for the development of many policies around the world.
