According to the United Nations, over 700 million people continue to live in extreme poverty and about 345 million are confronting acute food insecurity. Global uncertainties, including soaring food prices, are widening the gap between the rich and poor, weighing down poverty eradication. The international community should work together and make joint efforts.
