The European Parliamentary Alliance against Hunger and Malnutrition

Parliamentarians can significantly contribute to achieving the right to food at a global, national and local scale, as they play a key role in setting up the enabling legal and institutional frameworks, in allocating appropriate budgets and in monitoring government action on Food and Nutrition Security.

The European Parliamentary Alliance against Hunger and Malnutrition, established in 2016, has been and will continue to be instrumental in connecting Members of the European Parliament and in enabling them to engage actively in the fight against hunger and malnutrition. The Alliance provides a platform for policy dialogue and awareness-raising on the right to adequate food for all; on the eradication of hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition; and on making agriculture more sustainable and resilient. FAO, which acts as Secretariat of the Alliance, will support its future activities and will work tirelessly with the European Parliamentarians and other partners on making sure the world has enough good and nutritious food.

This brochure describes the activities of the Alliance in Brussels and beyond and is being used to engage, inform and attract more Parliamentarians to join the Alliance.
