The data emerged at the center's fourth international forum. Researchers said that according to human consumption habits, which include throwing away 1.3 billion tons of food every year, the planet is on pace to run out of food in coming decades.

With that it will require increasing food output by 70%, while currently natural resources are dwindling. Smallholder farmers can play an important part in preventing the next food crisis ��� both through increasing their own resilience to shocks and by helping to increase global food production. But also new approaches regarding the excess of food in Western countries, sustainable use of natural resources and more equitable distribution of food are much needed.

Harking back to the city's aristocratic traditions as a European powerhouse to rival Paris and London, the boutiques are proud to tell visitors they have everything the discriminating gentleman needs to step out about town. "We take care of all a man's needs, from head to toe," says Ugo Cilento of the 'Cilento 1780' emporium. "Everything is handmade and made to measure by legions of craftsmen," says Cilento, 39, the eighth generation of his family to cater to well-heeled clients from Italy and abroad.

Riemerge in superficie alla confluenza tra via Diaz e via Montecalvario, nel cuore dello shopping e del centro storico. Il Daily Telegraph di Londra la definisce cos��: ���The most impressive underground railway station in Europe���. Trionfa al primo posto nel reportage pubblicato sul portale internet del quotidiano britannico, ritratta dal fotografo napoletano Mario Laporta. Supera in bellezza la fermata Komsomolskaya dell���imponente metro di Mosca che omaggia gli eroi militari con stucchi dorati e mosaici e la stazione Solna di Stoccolma che, dopo un impressionante soffitto rosso riproduce un chilometro di abeti. Lascia al quarto posto il cemento e l���acciaio della stazione Westminster della famosa Tube di Londra inaugurata nel 1868 e, al quinto, le volute artistiche della parigina Arts et M��tiers. �� un gioiello urbanistico dove brillano due grandi mosaici dell'artista sudafricano William Kentridge, noto per i suoi film di animazione creati da disegni a carboncino, le scale mobili illuminate dall'interno, i light box di Bob Wilson che accompagnano il viaggiatore con il movimento delle onde marine e l���installazione fotografica di Achille Cevoli. Parte del circuito delle ���Stazioni dell���Arte��� Metronapoli, scende in profondit�� per 50 metri snodandosi al di sotto della falda acquifera, ha cinque piani e un percorso che segna, attraverso i colori, il passaggio dalla terra al mare, mentre uno spettacolare cratere collega la superficie con la grande hall situata 40 metri pi�� in basso. Gi�� Stendhal nel suo Grand Tour italiano datato 1817 diceva: ���Non dimenticher�� n�� la via Toledo n�� tutti gli altri quartieri di Napoli; ai miei occhi ��, senza nessun paragone, la citt�� pi�� bella dell'universo���. E non aveva ancora visto la metropolitana.
