The initiative, to fight hunger and malnutrition by 2025, was put together by the International Food Research Institute (IFPRI) based in Washington.

The leadership council is made up of several members that include Hailemariam Desalegn Boshe Prime Minister of Ethiopia, Neven Mimica, European Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development and for Malawi the President Peter Mutharika approved his Vice President Chilima to serve in the council.

Chilima’s spokesperson Pilirani Phiri said in a statement that that the “appointment of the Vice President in the council is a positive development for Malawi as the country will now be part of international decisions and strategies in eliminating hunger and malnutrition”.

During the launch on Wednesday the council members will also have their first meeting discussing strategies and ways of executing the ambitious plan across countries where malnutrition cases are high.

To achieve results, members serve as global champions for ending hunger and under-nutrition, provide guidance, share success stories and raise awareness because IFPRI believes that ending hunger is not only a moral obligation but also an economic one.

Hunger and nutrition are two different things. We can continue to try to ‘fill people up’ on high-carbohydrate, low-nutrient foods like maize (calculating only ‘calories per hectare’) and then continue to sink millions of dollars into fortification and supplementation programmes. Or, we can begin to work towards the true diversification of crops and diets, which is much healthier for both people and the planet. From the beginning of the Farm Input Subsidy Programme (FISP) in 2005, the Malawian government has been annually sinking millions of dollars into the subsidizing of synthetic fertilizers to boost maize production.
