Berlin, 27 Mar 2015. “We can meet the zero-hunger challenge by 2030”, said Gerd Müller, Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), Germany at a very successful outreach conference in Berlin which discussed the special initiative “One World – No Hunger”. The special initiative was created by BMZ to help implement the German Charter for the Future, One world Our Responsibility. The conference invited 300 participants and their constituencies to engage in designing the rural future. 2015 is a crucial year, underlined BMZ State Secretary Friedrich Kitschelt with the G7 summit in Germany, the conference on finance for development in Addis Ababa, the adoption of the sustainable development goals and their targets in New York and the new climate regime in Paris. BMZ has doubled the ministerial budget for rural development to 1.4 billion Euro, but without the political will of developing countries governments to eradicate hunger, the international community will fail to meet the ambitious target in 2030.
