Update on the Right to Food and the fight against hunger and malnutrition at international level
Women at the Forefront
OF THE FIGHT AGAINST HUNGER
Parliamentary Alliances in the fight against hunger
Soraya Rodríguez Ramos, as a Member of Ciudadanos in the liberal group of the European Parliament, is firmly convinced that parliamentary alliances are essential tools to consolidate the European Union’s policies in order to solve, through international cooperation, some of the great challenges of our time: hunger, malnutrition, sustainability of food systems and inequality.
As a result of this work and with the aim of raising awareness of the role of Parliamentary Alliances against Hunger and Malnutrition and informing citizens about the right to food at the international level, the book “Women at the forefront of the fight against hunger” was born.
The war against Ukraine is accelerating a global food crisis.
The war against Ukraine is accelerating a global food crisis. The European Union and the UN have warned that the blockade of ports and the bombing of cereal warehouses during Russia’s invasion of Ukraine will sharpen food insecurity and famine to unprecedented levels.
More than 200 million people in the world depend on grain and grain exported by Russia and Ukraine, considered the “barns of the world”. Russia blames the European Union that cereals cannot come out because of sanctions; however, it is but one more falsehood that Putin and his government are waging their war of disinformation.
The book “Women at the Forefront of the Fight against Hunger”
This publication is part of the work of the European Parliamentary Alliance against Hunger and Malnutrition, with the support of the European Parliament’s Renew Europe group. In this book, Soraya Rodriguez Ramos brings together the perspectives of 6 diverse women: congresswomen and senators from Africa and Latin America. The role of women in parliamentary alliances is, de facto, that of true protagonists.
