Fighting global hunger properlyThe global food system is broken. A globally coordinated effort to address both the short- and long-term aspects of the hunger crisis must therefore be the top priority. By disrupting global trade and pushing up food prices, these four "Cs" are creating a short-term challenge of increasing hunger. Overconsumption of cheap calories, enabled by global trade in commodities and fossil fuel-based inputs, has led to widespread obesity and caused severe environmental problems. Again, it is vital that immediate responses to the current hunger crisis also support the long-term transformation of our food systems.
