The Milan Protocol: Renzi Supports the Project Backed by CNN



In Parma yesterday Prime Minister Matteo Renzi lent his support and that of the Government to the Milan Protocol, sponsored by the Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition Foundation (BCFN) and supported by the National Council of Notaries since June 2014. This Protocol aims to make institutions, businesses and civil society aware of the urgency of addressing the challenges in rendering the global food system truly sustainable through targeted actions to achieve three key objectives: by 2020, halve the current waste of over 1.3 billion tonnes of edible food; limit financial speculation and the share of land set aside for the production of biofuels globally; and make further efforts to eliminate simultaneously hunger and malnutrition on the one hand and obesity on the other.

CNN has joined this international initiative because it considers that the objectives pursued by the Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition constitute the pillars of the economic life of a State; moreover, as a member of the International Union of Notariats (, a body composed of the notariats present in 86 countries worldwide, it has its own representatives working, at the request of the respective Governments, to support the right to landholding through modernisation of the land registry systems in Haiti, Vietnam, Madagascar, Togo, China, Egypt, Qatar, Colombia and Burkina Faso.

Making landed property safe and efficient, and thus protecting landholding as a “human right”, is essential for the economic development of every country. For this challenge, linked to the themes of Expo 2015, along with the Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition, notaries are ready to make available all their experience, gained through concrete projects of reform of land ownership with international organisations and political authorities, to protect the victims of landgrabbing by foreign multinationals.
