UNITED NATIONS (AP) - The head of the U.N.'s food and agriculture agency says eradicating hunger in Africa by 2025 is achievable - if Africa's leaders champion it and promote improved crop production and healthy eating.

Jose Graziano da Silva went even further in an interview Friday with The Associated Press, saying the Food and Agriculture Organization believes that hunger can be eradicated around the world "in a generation - in our lifetime" if there is a political commitment by world leaders to ensure that all their people get access to nutritious food.

"We are not talking about sending a man to the moon or something that complicated," he said. "We have the technology. We have the expertise. We have the things that we need to do it."
