Eradicating Hunger, Extreme Poverty Requires Collective Action

Inter Press Service: Opinion: Hungry for Change, Achieving Food Security and Nutrition for All
Paloma Durán, director of the Sustainable Development Goals Fund (SDG-F) at the U.N. Development Programme

“…To eradicate hunger and extreme poverty will require an additional 267 billion dollars annually over the next 15 years. … Going forward, this goal requires more than words, it requires collective actions, including efforts to double global food production, reduce waste, and experiment with food alternatives. … Food security and nutrition must be everyone’s concern especially if we are to eradicate hunger and combat food insecurity across all its dimensions. Feeding the world’s growing population must therefore be a joint effort and unlikely to be achieved by governments and international organizations alone…” (7/30).
