Innovation, ‘Diversity Of Approaches’ Needed To End Global Hunger

The Guardian: Wanted: innovative ideas on how to feed nine billion people
Gerda Verburg, chair of the U.N. Committee on World Food Security

“…As daunting as it may be, there are many opportunities available if we are willing to think smarter and use all our individual strength and the tools available to collectively end hunger. We need to stop approaching food and nutrition security in silos and fully embrace the linkages in order to take necessary action. … If we are serious about our commitment to end hunger in our lifetimes, then we must build bridges across existing divides — between rich and poor nations, industry and civil society, and so on. Out of a diversity of voices will come a diversity of approaches” (2/27).
