During formulation of current MDG plan of action, the social cultural and political issues have been ignore, which was one of the main reasons not to achieve MDGs at the optimum level. The hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition should be considered in both away: from micro and macro perspective. Local issues should have scope to explain local perspective rather considering from global perspective. I think more investment should be considered for generating local knowledge, invention and innovation rather giving prescription from global perspective.
