Davos delegates called on to give and to help stamp out inequality

The number of malnourished people worldwide is estimated to be close to one billion – nearly a seventh of the global population. The WFP’s mission is to reduce that number to zero. That goal cannot be achieved without a huge increase in participation from the private sector – as the programme’s Executive Director Ertharin Cousin explained to euronews. “That’s why it’s so important that we are here, that we are visible, that we have the opportunity to not just engage one-on-one with the private sector, but to get them into the discussion about what it will take, and how they can help, to achieve the goal of a zero hunger world,” she said.
