Hi, would you please explain the meaning the red part of the following sentence, from an English test. Tanks a lot.

The technical know-how, if not the political commitment, appears already at hand to feed the world’s exploding population and so to eradicate at least the ancient scourges of malnutrition and famine.

    The political commitment to feed the world's population may not exist, but the technical know-how to do so appears to be available.
