Hunger Report Calls on U.S. Leadership to End Hunger Within a Generation

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on December 6, 2012

“A new report issued by the Bread for the World Institute reveals the extraordinary progress many countries around the world have made in achieving the development goals they agreed to 12 years ago. However, programs that support these efforts could be derailed, depending on the outcome of ongoing U.S. negotiations to avert the “fiscal cliff.” The United States is the largest provider of poverty-focused development assistance programs in absolute terms. These effective programs are at risk in these negotiations. The 2013 Hunger Report: Within Reach—Global Development Goals, calls for a renewed push to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by the 2015 deadline and urges a focus on ending hunger and extreme poverty in a post 2015 development framework and set of goals.”
