Kenya first country to endorse charter to end extreme hunger

Kenya's Prime Minister was the first world leader to sign a ground-breaking Charter that would make deadly food crises like the one gripping East Africa a thing of the past.

The document, A Charter to End Extreme Hunger, was launched on Saturday as heads of state and other delegates at the United Nations General Assembly in New York focused on the East Africa crisis.

The Charter outlines five key actions that governments of rich and poor countries should take to stop widespread starvation as a result of drought, high food prices and conflict, namely

  • Responding early
  • Supporting local food production
  • Making food affordable
  • Protecting the poorest and most vulnerable
