Food crisis threatens 100m: UN

联合国:食品危机威胁1亿人

 

LONDON: A "silent tsunami" unleashed by costlier food threatens 100 million people, the United Nations said Tuesday, but views differed as to how to stop it.

伦敦消息:联合国星期二宣称,高价食品引发的一场“ 无声海啸”威胁1亿人,至于如何阻止它却众说纷纭。

 

The Asian Development Bank said there was enough food to go round, and the key was to help the poor afford it. It said Asian governments which have curbed food exports were over-reacting.

亚洲发展银行称有足够的粮食可以供应,关键是让穷人买得起。亚洲发展银行称限制粮食出口的亚洲国家反映过于强烈。

 

In London, Prime Minister Gordon Brown said Britain would seek changes to EU biofuels targets if it was shown that planting crops for fuel was driving up food prices - a day after the bloc stood by its plans to boost biofuel use.

就在欧盟宣布支持使用生物燃料计划的第二天,英国首相戈登.布朗在伦敦表示,如果用农作物作燃料致使食品价格升高,英国将想办法改变欧盟的生物燃料计划。

 

Britain also pledged $900 million to help the UN World Food Programme alleviate immediate problems and address longer-term solutions to "help put food on the table for nearly a billion people going hungry across the world".

英国还保证捐献9亿美元帮助世界粮食计划署缓解当前难题,并发布长期解决方案,“帮助全世界近十亿忍饥挨饿的人解决温饱问题。”

 

The World Food Programme, whose head Josette Sheeran took part in a meeting of experts Brown called yesterday to discuss the crisis, said a "silent tsunami" threatened to plunge over 100 million people on every continent into hunger.

昨天布朗召集专家会议来讨论食品危机,世界粮食计划署主任约塞特-施林在会上说,一场“无声的海啸”可能使每个大洲上1亿多人陷入饥饿。
