HUNGER: Long-Term Solutions Are Needed

“To avert the imminent risk of an unprecedented global food crisis, there is an urgent need for long-term sustainable solutions and political will and determination, addressing the roots of our unjust food system that triggers hunger,” said the Secretary General of Caritas Internationalis, Aloysius John.

The impact of COVID-19, conflicts, climate crisis, and the war in Ukraine are having terrible consequences all over the world, especially regarding food insecurity. Hence the appeal to governments and main stakeholders to commit themselves at all levels and to urge the implementation of sustainable recovery strategies based on addressing the impacts of climate change and conflicts. “A world without hunger is possible if people are motivated and encouraged to become active players in food production.”

Around the world, some 276 million people suffer from acute food insecurity while 811 million people still go to sleep without eating.
