Defining the Path to Zero Starvation in an Equitable World


May 26, 2023

Immediately’s world meals and diet disaster is being pushed by local weather change, battle, and hovering meals costs. A long time of progress within the struggle towards starvation and malnutrition have been reversed, as greater than 345 million individuals are dealing with excessive ranges of meals insecurity in 2023 – greater than double the quantity in 2020.

Through the 2022 World Meals Prize Borlaug Dialogues, the Chicago Council on World Affairs and The Rockefeller Basis gathered consultants and stakeholders from local weather, agriculture, meals safety, and humanitarian backgrounds to debate a daring imaginative and prescient for a twenty first Century of zero starvation in a more healthy and extra equitable world. The ensuing white paper, “Defining the Path to Zero Starvation in an Equitable World,” displays a abstract of their views and provides a framework to reimagine a hunger-free world.

This white paper is the primary of 4 studies from The Rockefeller Basis’s World Vitamin Safety portfolio, led by Catherine Bertini, former Govt Director of the World Meals Programme and 2003 World Meals Prize Laureate. The white paper identifies and analyzes three main obstacles—silos, myopic priorities, and top-down decision-making—and descriptions options that deal with these challenges and make our meals techniques extra sustainable, equitable and nourishing.
