Summits Alone Won't Feed the Hungry, Aid Agency Says
Date:9/22/2009

-- World Vision calls on U.S. Congress, G20 leaders to push forward commitments to end hunger

-- Climate change also affecting food security; global leaders must provide adequate funding to help poor communities adapt

PITTSBURGH, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As world leaders gather at the United Nations and G20 meetings this week, the future of the $20 billion food security initiative first proposed at July's G8 summit remains uncertain, say aid policy experts at Christian humanitarian agency World Vision.

"Earlier this year, G8 leaders made a $20 billion promise to the poor to improve access to food over the next three years," said Robert Zachritz, World Vision's director for advocacy and government relations in the U.S. "We commend the efforts of the Obama administration and other leaders in building global momentum to end hunger -- but we can't stop here. Summits alone won't feed the hungry. These leaders must follow through and put this proposal into action with solid policies and guaranteed funding."

Most G20 countries, the African Union Commission and several multilateral organizations endorsed the World Hunger Initiative's comprehensive approach to hunger and malnutrition, announced at the Group of Eight summit in L'Aquila, Italy. Leaders must now garner domestic support within each country to implement the plan, a global commitment of $20 billion over three years, including a $3.5 billion pledge from the U.S. for food security.

U.S. lawmakers can do their part by passing the Global Food Security Act of 2009 and the Roadmap to End Hunger to promote coordination of short-, medium- and long-term solutions to food insecurity. This includes development of agriculture, rural infrastructure and economies, as well as improving emergency responses, according to World Vision, a relief and development
