Address to the Joint Africa, Caribbean, Pacific Group-European Union (ACP-EU) Parliamentary assembly
Assistant Executive Director
Twenty-five thousand people die every day from hunger and malnutrition according to the Food and Agricultural Organisation, a toll far greater than AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined. Most of them are very young children. Yet we all seem to be looking the other way. Despite the generous commitments of the EU, the United States and others made in Monterrey, funding from donors to reach out to the hungry continues its long historic slide.
