The Caritas worldwide Confederation salutes the recurrence of World Food Day 2017 and welcomes the opportunity to dedicate it to Migration, a theme that - together with Food Security - is very much at the heart of Caritas concern and daily work. Poverty, food insecurity and malnutrition are among the root causes of migration.

Caritas defends human dignity and the right to food for everyone; it works to enhance the well-being of all people in need. We promote small-scale agriculture, particularly family-based, and agroecology as successful strategies for food security and sustainable rural development. Caritas especially promotes the role of women, as critical food producers and providers, and because of their central role in agriculture, by defending their access to education, labour and production resources.
