Enough food for everyone IF...
The world produces enough food for everyone, but not everyone has enough food.
That's the message of the Enough Food For Everyone IF... campaign, which brought together more than 200 organisations in the UK to call for action on global hunger.
The IF campaign drew to a close in October 2013 after 10 successful months of campaigning. Here are some of its achievements:
- Aid promise kept – Your campaigning made sure the Chancellor, George Osborne, committed to spend 0.7% of national income on life changing aid.
- Grassroots action – 45,000 of you came to London’s Hyde Park and helped get world leaders to pledge $4.1 billion.
- Unearthing land grabs – You helped put land grabs on the G8 agenda for the very first time.
- Backing climate finance – The G8 repeated the excellent promise of $100 billion a year of climate finance to help poor countries adapt to climate change. They gave some welcome encouragement for raising funds from aviation and shipping.
