Letter to the new FAO Director-General

Letter to the new FAO Director-General

Science for Democracy and the Associazione Luca Coscioni have written to the new FAO Director-General Qu Dongyu to congratulate him on his election, invite him to the 6th World Congress on the Freedom of Scientific Research and request a meeting to discuss the future of food.

In particular, the topic of new breeding techniques was brought forward, as it could provide at least a partial solution to world hunger. Leadership by the new leader of the international body responsible for food and agriculture would help to address the resistance of governments wanting to stifle to scientific progress and to prevent their citizens from enjoying its benefits, thus contravening the human right to science.
