Rural development and food security
No other human right is violated as often as the right to food. There are still 795 million people in the world who are starving. Two billion people are malnourished. Hunger is not just the biggest health risk there is, it is also one of the biggest obstacles to development.
Germany stands by its promise to contribute significantly to the efforts to eradicate hunger and malnutrition. The BMZ has therefore launched a special initiative, 'ONE WORLD – No Hunger', and is spending about 1.5 billion euros a year on food security and rural development. Because a world without hunger is possible.
