What You Need to Know About Hunger

Check out this latest video brought to you by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization’s Ending Hunger campaign.

The video highlights that to eliminate global hunger, we need to address the core underlying cause—poverty. Increasing global food production and food aid are not enough if basic rural infrastructure and employment opportunities are insufficient. Efforts to boost the rural economy by improving roads, building irrigation canals, supporting rural banking, improving rural communication, training farmers, and empowering women can improve agricultural production and increase incomes.
