HO CHI MINH CITY， Nov. 1 (Xinhua) -- Vietnam had 253，500 households which suffered from food shortages in the first 10 months of this year， up 15.1 percent against the same period last year， the country's Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development said Tuesday.
Specifically， over one million local people suffered from food shortages between January and October， up 14.9 percent.
The between-crop hunger surge was attributed to the prolonged serious drought nationwide， especially in the northern mid-land and mountainous region and the Central Highlands region， and recent floods in the central region， said the ministry.
Vietnam's relevant sectors and localities have so far this year offered hungry households 16，900 tons of food and some 600 million Vietnamese dong (26，900 U.S. dollars).
According to the new poor household criteria applied in the 2016-2020 period， Vietnam currently has a poor household rate of some 10.4 percent. According to the old criteria， the rate is 5.8-6 percent.

The debate will take place on the second day of the global Forum kyrie 3 light rone pas cher , which is the world's leading platform focusing on sport as a driver of social and economic change, held on December 9-11 at the Aspire Academy in Doha.
The panel, which also features Ronald K.

Former police Chief Ronnie Flanagan, who has chaired the ICC's Anti-Corruption Unit since 2010, said: ""I look forward to sharing my experiences of dealing with corruption in cricket at Doha GOALS. I've seen first-hand how the issue can infiltrate sport across international boundaries and have identified that collaboration between stakeholders is vital in the fight against illegal betting and match-fixing.""
""Doha GOALS is an opportunity to share best practice with a community of policymakers and government officials kyrie 3 bhm pas cher , heads of business, athletes, NGOs and students and help define better methods for prevention, detection and punishment to combat corruption in sport.""
With corruption in sport becoming a growing issue in recent years the panel will also look at ways in which organizations can collect better intelligence and how can law enforcement agencies bring more investigations to successful conclusions.
And in the spirit of the Doha GOALS Forum, the debate will ask how sporting groups and governments can work together better to deliver a rapid, co-ordinated response when instances of corruption are detected.
Cherie Blair said: ""Sport is such a force for good; it brings together families and neighbours kyrie 2 usa pas cher , unites regions and countries, and encourages competition between groups and nations that otherwise might not engage with each other. It's also a brilliant tool for motivating young people, keeping us healthy and building unity.
""That's why the rise of corruption in sport through activities like match-fixing is so serious: its enormous negative impact puts all these gains at risk. Corruption in sport is a global problem that pays little respect to national borders and the jurisdiction of domestic courts. The power of the internet and organised international criminal syndicates mean that we cannot, and must not, turn a blind eye to this menace. There must be a united international response from sporting organisations, regulators and governments if we are not to lose some of the magic that sport brings.""
The Doha GOALS initiative kyrie 2 skateboard pas cher , from the Aspire Zone Foundation and Richard Attias & Associates, will bring together a community of policymakers and government officials, heads of business, athletes, NGOs and students to build a roadmap for addressing social challenges through sport.
BEIJING, July 7 (Xinhua) -- While some of the stakeholders of the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue have thrown harsh words such as to act "very strongly" following the latest missile launch by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) kyrie 2 red velvet pas cher , dialogue and peace remains an international consensus.
The DPRK test-fired what it claimed to be an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) Tuesday, irking the United States as experts believed the missile, the Hwasong-14, was capable of reaching the U.S. state of Alaska and Hawaii.
U.S. President Donald Trump told a press conference with his Polish counterpart, Andrzej Duda, on Thursday that the DPRK "is a threat kyrie 2 PERFECT GISGUISED pas cher , and we will confront it very strongly."
Trump said he is considering "pretty severe things" in response but didn't elaborate on what they might be. The Associated Press (AP), however, warned in a Friday report that a pre-emptive U.S. strike on the DPRK would be "catastrophic," adding it is a step "so fraught with risk that it ranks as among the unlikeliest options."
Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis said Thursday the missile launch does not bring Washington and Pyongyang close to war, while reaffirming that his country will prioritize political and economic measures.
"I do not believe this capability in itself brings us closer to war because the president's been very clear kyrie 2 parade pas cher , the secretary of State's been very clear, that we are leading with diplomatic and economic efforts," he told reporters at the Pentagon.
