Millennium Campaign Meeting in Madrid

January's Madrid High Level Meeting on Food Security for All hosted country leaders, representatives, non-governmental and civil society organizations to discuss the issue of soaring food prices. Country leaders were challenged to increase their funding to help the world's hungry in these times of economic instability. The Spanish government committed to donate a total of 1 billion Euros over the next five years towards advancing agricultural development and food production. The UN Millennium Campaign encouraged others to follow this example and increase their support as well.
