Emergence of 'resilience-building' as key to reduce hunger

On 14 October, the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), along with Concern Worldwide and Welthungerhilfe, published a report supporting that resilience efforts be made to increase worldwide food security. The report notes that although world hunger is decreasing, it remains a serious issue, and that the common practice of contributing temporary aid to hungry developing states is not enough to lift a society out of hunger. This index, championed by two Members of the European Parliament (MEPs), Gay Mitchell and Norbert Neuser, calls for provisions to be made to allow food-insecure countries to better react to shocks that make their nutrition supply vulnerable, such as economic shifts, climate change, and pressures from the population. To foster resilience in the long term, however, the plan calls for a change in the society, politics, and economics of the developing countries.
