"Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has been a champion of the fight to end global hunger and undernutrition, making the case for increased investments in food security and nutrition to help move people out of poverty, create stronger communities, and build a more stable world," Jonathan Shrier, acting special representative for global food security, writes in a post in the State Department's "DipNote" blog. "At the Office of Global Food Security, we are looking forward to working with our partners across the whole of the U.S. government, international community, private sector, civil society, and partner nations to build on Secretary Clinton's legacy and to making 2013 another momentous year in the fight to end world hunger and undernutrition," he continues, highlighting a number of existing initiatives that "reflect the commitment of the U.S. government to end global hunger and signal the potential for achieving even more ambitious goals in the coming year" (2/1).
