About this book

Examines current world progress towards eliminating hunger, and calls for the implementation of seven recommendations in the areas of: political action, national policy reforms, increased agricultural productivity for food insecure farmers, improved nutrition for the chronically hungry, productive safety nets for the acutely hungry, improved rural incomes and markets, and restoration and conservation of natural resources essential for food security. The strategy includes over 40 interventions that poor countries can select and incorporate into individual action plans. Halving hunger is possible if these interventions are implemented effectively in the 133 hunger hotspots, where hunger is most persistent and severe, and where over 70 per cent of the world's 840 million hungry people currently reside.
