Why do we need a Zero Hunger Initiative?

While the 15 member countries of ECOWAS have reduced the prevalence of undernourishment from 24% in 1991 to 11% in 2012, this means that there are still close to 35 million people suffering from hunger in the region. Many people in the region lack resources and assets to cope with such shocks. Hunger and poverty is the result. We need to break this causality with a bold move: Only ZERO is an acceptable number when it comes to hunger!
