What is the #zerohunger movement?
Number 2 of the Sustainable Development Goals pledges to end hunger, achieve food security, improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.
Extreme hunger and malnutrition remains a barrier to sustainable development and creates a generational cycle from which is hard to escape. Hunger and malnutrition mean less productive individuals, who are more prone to disease and thus often unable to earn more and improve their livelihoods.
Why it matters
The situation of hunger is worsening in some parts of the world and represents one of the greatest challenges of our time. With hunger limiting human development, it is likely that the other sustainable development goals such as education, health and gender equality will not be achieved by 2030. A world with zero hunger can transform our economies, health, education, equality and social development. Zero hunger is therefore a key piece of building a better future for everyone.
