联合国粮食主管称全球最贫困者买不起食品 (UN Food Chief Says World's Poorest Cannot Afford Food)
 
联合国世界粮食计划署负责人约瑟特.施林说,很多世界上最贫困的人都由于飞涨的物价而买不起粮食。施林在接受美联社采访时说,恶劣的天气、缩短的收获期、升高的原油价格以及用粮食制作生物燃料,都导致食品开销超出贫困人口承受能力。用她的话说,“他们完全被高物价排挤出食品市场”。

 

她说,食品供应必须要调整,这样粮食才能不间断地运到世界上最易受影响的地区。施林说,她希望看到国际社会向需要加强农业基础的地区投资。

 

世界粮食计划署目前正对该机构认为最急需帮助的30个国家进行评估,其中包括阿富汗和几个非洲国家。
 
Josette Sheeran, the head of the United Nations World Food Program says that many of the world's poorest people cannot buy food because of soaring prices. Josette Sheeran said in an interview with the Associated Press that severe weather, shorter harvests, higher oil prices and the use of food to produce biofuel are driving food costs out of the reach of the poor. In her words, "they are simply being priced out of the food markets."

 

She said that food supplies have to be adjusted, so they will get to the most vulnerable parts of the world without disruptions. Sheeran said she would like to see the international community make investments in regions that need a stronger agricultural foundation.

 

The World Food Program is currently doing an assessment of 30 nations it has deemed most needy, including Afghanistan and several African nations.
