This country is going through a time of tremendous crisis and everyone is anticipating an economic recovery. The 2010 Hunger Report answers the question, recovery to what? It provides a vision for a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
The report stresses the mutual benefits of economic growth and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Today, no country’s future is secure unless all countries reduce dependence on fossil fuels and increase use of clean energy. Economic growth and reducing greenhouse gas emissions not only can occur simultaneously, they can reinforce each other, in much the same way that green jobs in the United States can provide productive employment and promote energy efficiency and economic growth.
The bottom line for gauging the success of the economic recovery is whether there is a significant reduction in the number of hungry and poor people in the United States and around the world. This report is intended to challenge all of us to think creatively and constructively about how economic recovery, climate change, and poverty can be addressed together — for the benefit of us all.
