Elon Musk - Solve World Hunger

The UN agree to Elon Musk’s terms and conditions for a possible $6 billion donation to solve world hunger.

“This hunger crisis is urgent, unprecedented, AND avoidable. @elonmusk, you asked for a clear plan & open books. Here it is! We’re ready to talk with you – and anyone else – who is serious about saving lives.”

The proposal, titled ‘A one-time appeal to billionaires’, explains that billions of dollars donated by some of the world’s richest people could help solve world hunger, with $3.5 billion of the donation being used for food and its delivery, and $2 billion spent on cash and food vouchers.

$700 million would be spent on ‘country-specific costs to design, scale-up and manage the implementation of efficient and effective programs for millions of tons more food and cash transfers and vouchers – adapted to the in-country conditions and operational risks in 43 countries.’

With the rest of the $400 million going towards ‘global and regional operations management, administration and accountability, including coordination of global supply lines and aviation routes; global logistics coordination such as freight contracting; global monitoring and analysis of hunger worldwide; and risk management and independent auditors dedicated to oversight’.

The World Food Program explained that the current world hunger crisis is a ‘perfect storm of conflict, climate crises, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and rising costs for reaching people in need’ which is causing a ‘seismic hunger crisis’.

Let’s wait and see what comes from all this.
