Obama, Congress, Global Hunger and Plumpy'nut

Published on 02 September 2011

President Obama and Congress need to work together in an area where bipartisan cooperation has been present before: fighting hunger. (..) Silke Buhr of the UN World Food Programme says, "WFP is concerned that drought conditions in the country have had a significant impact on crop production and will lead to more people needing food assistance. These new needs come at a time when we are already facing major resource shortfalls and have already had to make some really tough decisions to priorities how we use our resources."
