How can we end hunger by 2030?
What transformations are needed to reach SDG2, and what is the role of strategic partnerships in fostering such change?
Over 800 million people suffer from daily hunger, and despite numerous developmental successes, hunger, food insecurity and famine threats continue to prevail in many parts of the world. The Sustainable Development Goals address some of the largest challenges facing the world today, with SDG2 specifically dedicated to ending hunger, achieving food security and improved nutrition, and promoting sustainable agriculture by 2030.
Join us as we explore the status of current approaches to understanding hunger and food insecurity, the transformations needed to reach SDG2, and the role of strategic partnerships in fostering such change.
In addition, we will explore the role of various stakeholders in bridging the gap between research, policy and practice while working towards achieving SDG2 targets.
The aim is to stimulate conversation around the transformations needed to reach SDG2, and the role of strategic partnerships in fostering such change.
