een korte geschiedenis van 45 jaar loze beloftes honger uit de wereld te zullen bannen

UPDATE / Lees hier de laatste cijfers en feiten over honger en ondervoeding.

In deze wereld is er dagelijks voedsel voorhanden om 9 miljard mensen te voeden. Wie echter geen geld heeft, moet op zijn of haar kin en die van de kinderen kloppen. Beschamend.

“So long as freedom from hunger is only half achieved, so long as two-thirds of the nations have food deficits, no citizen, no nation can afford to be satisfied. We have the ability, as members of the human race, we have the means, we have the capacity to eliminate hunger from the face of the earth in our lifetime. We only need the will.”

–President J. F. Kennedy, World Food Congress, Washington D.C., 1963

“The profound comment of our era is that for the first time we have the technical capacity to free mankind from the scourge of hunger. Therefore today we must proclaim a bold objective: that within a decade no child will go to bed hungry, that no family will fear for its next day bread and that no human being’s future and well being will be stunted by malnutrition.”

–Dr. Henry Kissinger, World Food Conference, Rome, 1974

“We believe that it is indeed possible to end world hunger by the year 2000. More than ever before, humanity possesses the resources, capital, technology and knowledge to promote development and to feed all people, both now and in the foreseeable future. By the year 2000 all the world’s people and all its children can be fed and nourished. Only a modest expenditure is needed each year – a tiny fraction of total expenditure which amounts to $650 billion a year. What is required is the political will to put first things first and to give absolute priority to freedom from hunger.”

–FAO World Food Colloquium, 1992

“We pledge our political will and our common and national commitment to achieving food security for all and to an ongoing effort to eradicate hunger in all countries, with an immediate view to reducing the number of undernourished people to half their present level no later than 2015.”

–Rome Declaration on World Food Security, World Food Summit, 1996

“We resolve further: To halve, by the year 2015, the proportion of the world’s people whose income is less than one dollar a day and the proportion of people who suffer from hunger and, by the same date, to halve the proportion of people who are unable to reach or to afford safe drinking water.”

–United Nations Millennium Declaration, New York, 2000

“We renew our global commitments made in the Rome Declaration at the World Food Summit in 1996 in particular to halve the number of hungry in the world no later than 2015, as reaffirmed in the United Nations Millennium Declaration. We resolve to accelerate the implementation of the WFS Plan of Action.”

–Declaration of the World Food Summit: five years later, Rome, 2002

“We reaffirm the conclusions of the World Food Summit in 1996, which adopted the Rome Declaration on World Food Security and the World Food Summit Plan of Action, and the objective, confirmed by the World Food Summit: five years later, of achieving food security for all through an ongoing effort to eradicate hunger in all countries, with an immediate view to reducing by half the number of undernourished people by no later than 2015, as well as our commitment to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).”

–Declaration of the High-Level Conference on World Food Security, Rome, June 2008

“The 2000 Millennium Declaration aimed to halve the proportion of the world population facing poverty and undernourishment by the year 2015; the world is very far from reaching this goal according to the alarming data provided by the relevant international bodies.

“We reiterate our determination to defeat hunger and to ensure access to safe, sufficient and nutritious food for present and future generations.”

–Declaration of the G8 agricultural ministers meeting, Cison di Valmarino, April 2009
