Interview with State Secretary Jochen Flasbarth
State Secretary Jochen Flasbarth and the head of the church organisations Brot für die Welt and Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe Dagmar Pruin talk together about the global food crisis. According to a figure from the United Nations, 828 million people are starving worldwide. That is 10 million more people than before the Corona pandemic. The discussion partners look at this alarming development and ask themselves what can be done against hunger worldwide. According to Jochen Flasbarth, Germany bears a great responsibility. Development Minister Svenja Schulze first voiced her idea of a global alliance against hunger at the World Bank meeting in Washington, which has now been implemented and made mandatory under Germany's G7 leadership at the summit in Elmau.
