Gilmore warns UN of ‘future shocks’ Irish Examiner

EAMON GILMORE has praised the progress made in the battle against under-nutrition in the developing world but warned that once the crisis ends, many people will remain vulnerable to "future shocks". The Tánaiste was addressing a meeting on nutrition at the UN General Assembly in New York yesterday. "There is now a global recognition that short-term relief must be situated within a longer term strategy to reduce the vulnerability to hunger," he told the gathering of more than 400 at the UN headquarters.
