World Food Day and its Challenges
Dear italian Minister of Agriculture,
the critical relationship between climate change, food security and sustainable development are global topics, discussed yesterday at the ministerial meeting on Agriculture, within italian G7 Presidency.
Hunger, poverty, and an increase in extreme weather events linked to climate change are other important factors contributing to the migration challenge, which is today at the heart of the World Food Day.
Three-quarters of the extreme poor base their livelihoods on agriculture or other rural activities.
Investing in rural development can address factors that compel people to move by creating business opportunities and jobs.
Creating conditions that allow rural people, especially youth, to stay at home is a crucial component of any plan of cooperation in migration management.
Governments should act immediately to provide concrete tools to farmers as well as to safeguard their income worldwide, laying the ground for long-term recovery and inclusive and sustainable growth.
Towards an European Cyber Diplomacy
Security is a common good to share with everyone trought a cooperation between public and private sector. Policy and technology innovation are crucial in reducing security risks.
In the coming months, a policy decision will be made on whether a strategic cyber attack will be used against North Korea. This choice will be difficult to make due to its potential strategic implications.
States need a national digital security strategy that should be integrate into overall planning and supported at the highest level of government, coherentely with economic and social policies.
One of those strategic tools of deterrence is an effective cyber diplomacy.
The EU launched an interesting initiative called a "Cyber Diplomatic Toolbox" – a framework for joint EU diplomatic responses to cyber attacks.
Stronger political commitment on improving the level of cyber-readiness is needed as well as financial and human capacity to invest in developing the most powerful cyber weapons.
Sometimes the diplomatic response is not sufficient, especially when the impacts of cyberattacks are severe.
An EU comprehensive framework, with different ways to respond, is necessary, strenghten “the cyber solidarity” .
Leaders should keep in mind that cyber security is not only a matter of technical measures, but also of high politics – closely linked to the international political and strategic context.

The Future of Mobility
Dear CEO of ENEL, Mobility is a fundamental human need and a key enabler of economic and social prosperity. How people move affects productivity, security, health and global warming.
The mobility revolution is lead by electric cars with benefits in terms of energy efficiency, safety and environmental sustainability, but are cities ready for them?
In the future, transport options will be increasingly dependent on a city's specific characteristics, including its level of car ownership, urban density, income per capita and infrastructures such as road and rail networks.
As global demand for electric mobility continues to grow, innovative public-private partnerships offer unique opportunities to overcome the persistent challenges in transportation, such as greenhouse gas emissions, congestion and security.
Collaboration between governments, businesses, civil society and academia is crucial to provide improve better access to transport without compromising the quality of life in towns and cities.
Political paralysis and financial stability in Europe
Dear Governor of the Bank of Italy, the risk of political paralysis in Europe has never been so high and the anti-integration forces could spread a spiral of nationalist policies. The weight of debt, the lack of growth and the rise of protectionism could spark financial strains and make higher inflation more likely
De-globalization trends pose challenges to the financial stability and to the international cooperation with a substantial impact on the domestic monetary policy. UK after Brexit could be a case study.
The secular forces of Financial openness and technological change could reverse this slow down trends?
