About the Theme
Food is a staple human right for every human being. However, the world is not on track to achieve Zero Hunger anytime soon. The COVID-19 pandemic could skyrocket the number of starved, putting an additional 130 million people at risk of suffering acute hunger by the end of 2020.
The echo of the rumbling of stomachs will soon overcome the bedlam of the artillery. Or so foretell the 690 million hungry stomachs and the 135 million from those ravaged by resource-fed conflicts.
Hunger is perhaps the greatest cause of fighting: humanity has been ravaged by a plethora of wars due to the unavailability of food and other basic necessities. Our fabric of harmony has been torn and it is time to harmonize our efforts to stitch it back together.
