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

organization working in 100 countries.

"The U.S. contribution to its own initiative will fall flat unless Congress takes up the charge and passes the bills that make it happen," Zachritz said. "To deliver on the proposal, both parties in the House and Senate will have to reach an accord with the White House, and for that, cooperation must be robust."

World Vision calls on developing and industrialized countries alike to make firm commitments toward ending the global food insecurity that has pushed nearly 1 billion people worldwide into hunger. About one in six people suffer from hunger every day, while malnutrition is a factor in a third of all childhood deaths and stunts the growth and development of many young children.

Leaders debating environmental policies this week must also consider the impact of climate change on food security for the poor.

Altered weather patterns and more frequent natural disasters are already making families less secure in their access to food, and fueling struggles over scarce resources. World Vision urges lawmakers to form policies and pass climate-change legislation this year that includes adequate funding to help poor communities adapt to its effects.
