  • Description

    The first meeting of a joint commission on food and nutrition in the African continent ended on Friday (13th September,), with a statement that said that there had been a deterioration in food production in Africa.

    The commission was set up the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation, the World Health Organisation, and the Organisation of African Unity. Its first meeting in Brazzaville, capital of Congo-Brazzaville, said that food production had dropped principally because of the droughts of the last six years.

    Brazzaville is the regional headquarters of the African branch of the World Health Organisation, and the meeting was attended by delegates from 24 African countries, as well as delegates from some African liberation movements, and representatives from other United Nations Committees.
