According to the World Food Program, 821 million people – one in nine – still go to bed on an empty stomach each night – most of them women and children. Even more – one in three – suffer from some form of malnutrition. The UN SDGs – the global blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all – pledge to end hunger, achieve food security, improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture by 2030 under SDG 2. The aim of the 2030 Agenda is to end hunger and all forms of malnutrition around the world within the next 15 years. In view of the rapidly growing global demand for food, it is estimated that food production worldwide will need to have doubled by 2050.

Besides aiming to eliminate hunger, Goal 2 includes a target on ending all forms of malnutrition. Food quality is just as important Agriculture 5 12 as food quantity. Goal 2 also incorporates economic aspects, such as doubling the agricultural productivity and income of small-scale farmers by 2030. Furthermore, it features provisions on sustainable agriculture to prevent increased food production from harming the environment. Glance at our activities.
