Food security has always been at the top of my agenda. Upon taking office, my government launched a major domestic programme aimed at eliminating—not just alleviating—hunger at home. In 2003, the pioneering Zero Hunger programme has allowed millions of extremely poor Brazilians to have three square meals a day. Its success has encouraged me to believe that similar goals can be achieved at the global level, where millions fall victim to hunger every year. I have therefore put the fight against poverty at the top of Brazil’s international agenda.
