The world is producing more food than ever. However, the current global food system is failing to pro-vide healthy, sustainable, and affordable choices for everyone, contributing to food insecurity, obesity and related diseases, and environmental problems, and violating the right to adequate food and nutrition. Welthungerhilfe’s vision is a world in which everyone has the chance and the right to lead a self-determined life in dignity and justice, free from hunger and poverty. To achieve this, governments must transform current food systems in the public interest, so that they connect the well-being of the people to the well-being of our planet. This transition must be centered on the fulfilment of the human right to food and on the understanding that human and planetary health are interdependent.
