‘Alliance for Science Global South Hub’ an NGO, has been advocating more resources to fight global hunger, with its latest event against hunger taking place in Accra. The Programme was carried out under a flagship initiative called “Relief to Resilience’’.
It seeks to build ‘farmer capacity’ by increasing awareness on innovations in science and technology, especially agriculture which can accelerate productivity and end world hunger in countries experiencing extreme hunger.
The Alliance for Science is a global scientific communication initiative that seeks to promote access to scientific innovation as a means of enhancing food security, improving environment sustainability, and raising the quality of life globally.
In order to encourage resilience, climate change, global health, and to combat false information in science and technology, the Global South Hub was established in Kenya in August 2022.
Founding Director of the West Africa Center for Crop Improvement at the university of Ghana, Prof. Eric Yirenkyi Danquah, called for development of the Country’s seed system rather than depending on other countries for seeds.
Executive Director, Alliance for Science, Dr Shiela Ochugboju for her part said many young people are not hungry but rather insecure.
Deputy Minister for Food and Agriculture, Yaw Frimpong added that in order to combat hunger in the country there is need to appreciate scientists and make use of science and technology.
