Bangladesh Krishok Federation was invited to the seminar to intervene. Badrul Alam, President of Bangladesh Krishok Federation intervened raising the question of world hunger. He expressed the opinion that in terms of reducing hunger the MDG failed. In 2000 it identified 852 million hungry people in the world and promised to halve it within 2015 but now it is more than 1 billion. It means the hungry people is on the rampant. Mr. Alam added that the concept of food security is not able to solve the problem. The question of food sovereignty should be prioritized that ultimately advocates an agro-ecological method of farming. He pointed out that the the report of Olivier De Shutter who is the special rapporteur of Right to Food Council of UNO. His report was submitted to the UNO expressing optimism that if the small scale farmers are allowed to go the agro-ecological method farming the production of food in the world should double with in 10 years. Moreover, the international Network of Peasants' organization, La Via Campesina has been promoting the food sovereignty concept as principle in food production system and pushing the issue in different international institutions concerned but it is not complied with due to the influence of TNCs, specially the agro-business companies. Mr. Alam expressed the opinion that new development framework as post 2015 should be formulated considering failure of past goals and targets. The development goals should be defined in pragmatic way rather than take into consideration the agenda set by the TNCs in line with neo-liberal economic model.
