Today’s international meals and nutrition crisis is becoming driven by climate adjust, conflict, and soaring meals costs. Decades of progress in the fight against hunger and malnutrition have been reversed, as much more than 345 million folks are facing higher levels of meals insecurity in 2023 – much more than double the quantity in 2020.
For the duration of the 2022 Globe Meals Prize Borlaug Dialogues, the Chicago Council on International Affairs and The Rockefeller Foundation gathered professionals and stakeholders from climate, agriculture, meals safety, and humanitarian backgrounds to talk about a bold vision for a 21st Century of zero hunger in a healthier and much more equitable planet. The resulting white paper, “Defining the Path to Zero Hunger in an Equitable Globe,” reflects a summary of their views and delivers a framework to reimagine a hunger-cost-free planet.
This white paper is the initial of 4 reports from The Rockefeller Foundation’s International Nutrition Safety portfolio, led by Catherine Bertini, former Executive Director of the Globe Meals Programme and 2003 Globe Meals Prize Laureate. The white paper identifies and analyzes 3 significant obstacles—silos, myopic priorities, and leading-down choice-making—and outlines options that address these challenges and make our meals systems much more sustainable, equitable and nourishing.
