In the document titled “Ending Hunger Through Sustainable Development” by Maurice F. Strong, the author throws light on how the task of ending hunger, to which the ‘Hunger Project’ is so effectively committed, is inevitably and inextricably linked with the need to eradicate the scourge of poverty which continues to afflict so many of the people of the planet, but by no means all of them, in the developing world. The severe economic deterioration of the majority of developing countries, particularly those of.Latin America and Africa, during the past several years, coupled with the increased evidence of widespread·degradation of the environmental and natural resource base has been disastrous. It has been argued that the costs and risks of the degradation of the Earth’s capital are borne by industrialized and developing countries but still the industrialized countries have enjoyed the benefits of being the originators and longest players of the economic growth league. The author makes it clear that there is no area in which the sustainability of development is more important in terms of human welfare than in the field of agriculture. It is important to ensure that the entire population of the world community has access to the food supplies that they would require to meet at least their minimum requirements for food health and nutrition. Furthermore, the author also highlights that even though women hold a very key status in issues of agriculture and rural life, yet, deeply entrenched cultural and social patterns continue to inhibit women from access to the education, status and other means of realizing their full potential. The author concludes by mentioning the importance of better use of food surpluses as they could make an important contribution to sustainable development and the elimination of hunger. The ways in which these surpluses are managed and the deficits met will have an extremely important bearing on.the world food situation in the·future and on the prospects for eliminating hunger.
