The world made great progress through drastic advancements in science and technology, while it still has negative legacy such as poverty and war. It shows that realization of sustainable development of the planet is still difficult. In other words, this world is “hunger world”, hungry for sustainable development of the planet.
In order to satisfy this hunger, approach from all sides to accomplish human development, and to eradicate hunger and to obtain food security is indispensable considering the breadth, which these two issues contain.
This is the biggest challenge in human history and is worth challenging. Freeing the world from hunger requires unprecedented changes in political, economic, and social structures.
The key to these changes is each individual to be liberated from hunger both physically and spiritually. Because each individual form the backbones of political, economic and social structures and one’s state define the state of the world. Furthermore, it is possible to create synergy by each individual to create relationships based on mutual understanding and respect regardless of where one was borne or how one lives.
For that reason, what required now is to create an enabling environment where will and action of each individual and political, economic and social structures based on them themselves will promote freedom from hunger and the synergy will be maximized.
