SDG 2 Zero Hunger
The SDG 2 is a universal and urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – to end hunger, achieve food security and improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture by 2030. The goal, being adopted in 2015 is a follow-up of the partially achieved millennium goals.
Among others, this goal includes the end of hunger and ensure access to nutrition particularly by vulnerable people such as the poor and infants, the end of all forms of malnutrition, doubling the agricultural productivity, ensuring sustainable food production systems and maintaining the genetic diversity of seeds. The creativity, know-how, technology and financial resources from all of society is necessary to achieve SDG 2 in every context.
