No one individual or organization owns #ZeroHunger, which is the goal we share and the world we want. WFP encourages people to join a new community Facebook page and switch their profile page to highlight a striking white circle representing the target of Zero Hunger. According to The State of Food Insecurity in the World 2015 report, 795 million people suffer from hunger today, down 167 million from a decade ago. To speed up progress and save countless lives and build stronger futures by 2030, it would take an annual investment of US$265 billion – about 0.3 percent of the global Gross Domestic Product. The economic benefit of ending hunger, however, is calculated to be worth about 5 percent of global GDP.  ED - E.Cousin Central African Republic Malawi South Sudan English Africa Executive Director - Ertharin Cousin Video News Release Thu, 15 Oct 2015 15:36:53 +0000 WFP 648149 at http://www.wfp.org Voices And Faces From The Malawi Relief Operation http://www.wfp.org/stories/malawi-relief-operation Southern Africa is in the grip of food insecurity, with more than 27 million* people facing hunger over the next six months.
