Nabarro visits Yara

Global food security was the natural main topic when the UN Secretary General’s Special Representative for Food Security and Nutrition, Dr. David Nabarro, paid Yara a visit on 20 August.

“Around one in seven people are hungry today. It’s not just about enough food to eat, it’s also about access to the nutrients that they need for healthy growth and intellectual development. It’s particularly important for adolescent girls, and from pregnancy through to a child’s second birthday,” explained Dr. David Nabarro. 

Yara shared its experiences from working in partnerships that aim to develop the agricultural sector, emphasizing in particular the models emerging from African initiatives such as the Agricultural Growth Corridors and the Grow Africa partnership, which Yara co-chaired until recently. 

“It is important that official representatives at the level of Nabarro understand Yara’s strategy and way of operating in the market, as he is Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon’s voice on food security and how the private industry should engage to eliminate hunger,” said CEO and President Jørgen Haslestad. 

Nabarro, who was also appointed coordinator of the Scaling Up Nutrition(SUN) movement in December 2011, consistently applies integrated approaches to reducing global hunger and malnutrition, including agriculture and food systems.
