“Voices against hunger”

The current famine crisis in East Africa was a further issue discussed at the conference. “It is shameful that we are seeing one donor conference after the other and are still not capable of providing four million euros of emergency aid for Africa,” Gerd Müller criticised in his opening speech. The international community of states knew what had to be done to pave the way for a world without hunger. Now action had to be taken. The Minister and six further actors from international cooperation have put together strategies to achieve this in the book “Voices against hunger”, which they presented at the conference.
