New York Times Examines U.N.’s Zero Hunger Challenge
New York Times: A Road Map for Eradicating World Hunger
“…Around the world, nations as varied as Brazil, Cambodia, Iran, and the Philippines have reported progress toward the goals of the Zero Hunger Challenge, a campaign that the United Nations began in 2012. … The goal is more complex than it may sound, however. The biggest challenge, experts say, is not simply for the world as a whole to produce enough food, though the pressures of a warming climate and a growing global population are likely to make that more difficult. Ending hunger has more to do with making sure that the poorest have the means to buy or grow enough to keep their families well nourished and that infrastructure is strong enough and markets sufficiently robust to get food to where it needs to be, the experts say…” (Gardner, 6/24).
