Goal 2- End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim to end all forms of hunger and malnutrition by 2030, making sure all people – especially children and the more vulnerable – have access to sufficient and nutritious food all year round. This involves promoting sustainable agricultural practices: improving the livelihoods and capacities of small scale farmers, allowing equal access to land, technology and markets. It also requires international cooperation to ensure investment in infrastructure and technology to improve agricultural productivity.
Nutrition needs to figure prominently in the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals. This brief describes the multidirectional linkages between nutrition and the SDGs, argues for much more attention to nutrition among the goals, and encourages dialogue on how to apply best practices at scale to resolve the world's nutrition challenges as quickly as possible.
