This is the July 18, 2017 hearing on "'The Four Famines': Root Causes and a Multilateral Action Plan," held before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Multilateral International Development, Multilateral Institutions, and International Economic, Energy, and Environmental Policy of the Committee on Foreign Relations. From the Opening Statement of Todd Young: "We certainly want to receive an update regarding the humanitarian crises in Nigeria, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen. We want to have as clear of an understanding as possible on what is really happening in each of these four countries. But receiving an update and obtaining a better understanding of these crises is, frankly, not enough. [...] Based on an understanding of the root causes, I, for one, am most interested in identifying and catalyzing additional specific actions that other governments, NGOs, and multilateral institutions can take, actions they can take without delay, to help prevent millions from dying of starvation in these four countries." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Matthew Nims, David Beasley, Justin, Forsyth, Dominik Stillhart, Deepmala Mahla, and Eric Schwartz.
