President Dr Lazarus Chakwera says time is ripe for the world to act against hunger amid growing challenges to feeding nations across the globe.

Dr Chakwera was speaking when he participated in a panel discussion hosted by the Clinton Global Initiative on The Food Crisis and the Threat of Destabilization: “How we can take urgent and sustainable action to address food insecurity”

“Time for just sharing notes and holding meetings is long gone. What the world needs now to combat hunger and starvation is action,” said Dr Chakwera.

In his remarks, the Director General of the Food and Agriculture Organization, Qu Dongyu said countries need to work in concert with one another to deal with global food challenges.

“Food is a fundamental human right and as such it must be affordable, accessible and guaranteed to all at all times,” said Dongyu.

The meeting comes at a time the world is grappling with climate change, the Covid-19 Pandemic and conflicts in some parts of the world which have exacerbated the food crisis.

President Chakwera was invited to the discussions by the Clinton Global Initiative which works to better the lives of people across the globe.
