24 World Food Prize Laureates Urge U.S. President to Make Fighting Global Hunger Top Priority
Tuesday, 2021/03/02 | 07:09:26

On February 23, 2021, 24 World Food Prize Laureates through the World Food Prize Foundation released an open letter, U.S. Leadership Needed to Help End World Hunger, urging the Biden-Harris Administration to focus on alleviating hunger, poverty, and malnutrition around the globe.

 

The World Food Prize Laureates last came together for a global call to action 19 years ago. As the Biden-Harris administration begins, the World Food Prize Laureates call on the President to take immediate action to directly and fully address global hunger and food insecurity. "We urge the Biden-Harris Administration to seize this moment and invest in development and cooperation to achieve zero hunger by 2030, the Letter says. It also states that American leadership on getting food systems right will inspire and embolden others to join forces to end hunger, counter climate change, generate jobs, and promote responsible stewardship of the environment.

 

The Laureates call on the Administration of U.S. President Biden to re-establish American global leadership to end hunger, play a leadership role in the upcoming UN Food Systems Summit and other global initiatives, refresh U.S. evidence-based policy and investment to achieve the goal of ending hunger, and expand the highly-successful USAID Feed the Future Initiative and Innovation Labs to reach more countries.

 

For more details, read the news article on the World Food Prize Foundation website where the open letter is also available.
