To eradicate hunger in the world: an attainable goal.

Ten years later, the WFO report indicates there are still 854 undernourished people in the world. However, the improvement on economic results in development countries and the attention given world wide to the dual problem poverty-hunger, point to good results for future years.

Agricultural growth should be supported, since it is crucial for income generating and employment. It accounts for the basic living of 70% of the poor population in developing countries and it needs a serious commitment and an investing policy according to the importance of the sector. Peace and stability are also sine qua non conditions for reducing hunger and poverty.

"The world has the means to feed its population; the persistence of hunger is a scandal". Political will is needed, but the conclusion is clear: it can be achieved.
