Better, more effective U.S. poverty-focused development assistance is critical to reducing hunger and poverty around the world. Bread for the World, as a collective Christian voice urging our nation’s decision makers to end hunger at home and abroad, is working to make poverty-focused assistance more efficient and more effective. Bread for the World Institute’s annual Hunger Reports—particularly the 2011report, Our Common Interest: Ending Hunger and Malnutrition, and the 2009 report, Global Development: Charting a New Course — offer recommendations on how to accomplish this.
