With the Sustainable Development Goals, the international community of states has set itself the goal of putting an end to hunger by 2030. Seven development co-operation experts have now presented their strategies addressing this in a new book.

“We can achieve a world without hunger! But only if we join forces. Let’s get to work!” Under this motto, seven development co-operation experts from government, civil society, the private sector and academia have described the key issues that that they believe have to be tackled if we are to conquer hunger and malnutrition by 2030 in a new book. “Voices against hunger”, published by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), was presented at the conference “One World – No hunger. The Future of the Rural World” in Berlin/Germany in late April 2017.

Germany’s Federal Development Minister Gerd Müller starts off by stressing that “business as usual” is not an option. According to Müller, a comprehensive strategy for ending hunger has to comprise ten core elements: building an innovative agricultural sector; developing rural areas comprehensively; making agricultural markets fair and just; allocating land fairly; ending discrimination against women; ensuring food and nutrition security, also in times of crisis; tackling climate change; making conserving natural resources a top priority; managing forests sustainably; pursuing marine conservation and sustainable fisheries.

Akinwumi Ayodeji Adesina, President of the African Development Bank, stresses Africa’s need for a structural transformation of agriculture to make it more productive, efficient and competitive.
