Mexico and 12 other countries were awarded by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) for their “notable progress in the fight against hunger,” after achieving the international objectives before the 2015 deadline.

The awards were given to representatives of the 13 countries by FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva at the organization headquarters in Rome.

Representing Mexico was the Undersecretary of Planning, Evaluation and Regional Development in the Social Development Secretariat, Juan Carlos Lastiri Quirós.

Brazil, Cameroon, Ethiopia, the Philippines, Gabon, Gambia, Iran, Kiribati, Malaysia, Mauritania, Mauritius and Uruguay also received awards.

The first objective of the Millennium Development Goals — to reduce the proportion of people suffering from hunger by half — was just one of the advances that these countries made, said Graziano da Silva.
