Ending Global Hunger Requires Political Will, Partnerships, Country Ownership, Financing

allAfrica: Africa: We Can End Global Hunger — Kofi Annan
Kofi Annan, chair of the Kofi Annan Foundation

“…[The African Green Revolution Forum] is an opportunity not only to celebrate collective progress but also to commit ourselves to step up the battle against hunger and malnutrition. … There are four main keys to tipping the scales and relegating global hunger to history. The first is the continued political will to place and keep the issue high on domestic and international agendas … Second is partnerships. … Thirdly, we must retain and strengthen country ownership. … Finally we need to recognize the critical importance of financing. … Developing country leaders, private sector companies, donors, NGOs, and others now have the chance to achieve something incredible within our lifetimes. … I challenge my colleagues working in global development, especially heads of state and private sector leaders, to prioritize this issue. Working together — across sectors and disciplines — we can make hunger history” (9/7).
