There is enough food in the world to feed everyone, yet one in eight women, men and children go to bed hungry every night.
This is a human tragedy, with a clear moral imperative for world leaders to act to ensure that the global food system functions effectively. The G8 can make a huge contribution to global efforts to tackle hunger by working in partnership with others to increase investment and improve the transparency, accountability and governance of key aspects of the food system.
The Enough Food For Everyone IF campaign welcomes the UK government’s intention to give development a significant place on this year’s G8 agenda and to use the opportunity to host a Hunger Summit, and a Tax, Trade and Transparency Summit, in June 2013 before the G8 Summit itself.
We urge G8 leaders to make strides towards a world free from hunger.
