would like to thank the leadership of World Vision International and Royal DSM for inviting me to participate and speak at this auspicious event of the Leadership for Nutrition. It is a privilege I will always cherish.As we are all aware, food security and nutrition is one of the most basic rights of mankind. But, in reality, this is not the case, as many people across the world are aff ected by hunger and malnutrition. By comparison, Afr ica is mostly hit as the number of victims is disturbingly higher than in other regions. The recent estimates indicate that out of nearly 870 million hungry people, almost a quarter are living in Afr ica. Furthermore, poor nutrition is responsible for at least half of the 10.9 million child deaths each year. In fact, malnutrition is amongst the major stumbling blocks towards achieving almost every Millennium Development Goal, particularly MDGs 1, 3, 4 and 5.
