Hunger, food and malnutrition are a recurring and priority theme for international development.
Whether it is about tackling starvation or malnutrition in a humanitarian or crisis context, or on a more everyday level for a poor country, the ability to be have enough to eat, and to eat well, is something which comes immediately to mind for French people in terms of basic needs.
And yet when it comes to resolving the issue of hunger in the world, opinions vary (notably according to political preference) particularly when hunger is discussed against other needs, such as health, education or economic development for poor countries.
Articles in this section highlight the key priorities for French people on this issue, as well as support (or rejection) for international or national investment in tackling global hunger.
