But at WFP we believe that defeating hunger is more than just a key goal for Rio+20 and the discussions it will host on sustainable development. We think hunger actually underpins the whole debate about sustainable development: we can’t achieve ‘the future we want’, without first dealing with hunger.
These are our 4 messages for anyone attending Rio+20 or concerned about the issues it aims to address.
