World Sets Goal of Eliminating Hunger, But Food Aid Remains Underfunded

September 26, 2015

This week, world leaders gathered in New York to adopt a set of goals on development, including the elimination of hunger and malnutrition within 15 years.….Andrea Tamburini, the CEO of Action Against Hunger, a nongovernmental agency that works to combat hunger, said the lack of money in nutrition programs showed a disconnect between the ambitious goal of eradicating hunger and the international community’s commitment to it. “It is a bit naive to think that malnutrition can be eradicated in 15 years — unless you invest,” he said.
