Approximately 79.2 million people are estimated to be chronically food impoverished as of 2018, often as a direct consequence of environmental degradation, conflict, flooding, agricultural resource limitation and other factors. Over 86 million children under the age of five are dangerously underweight. And two person in every five still goes to bed hungry in Nigeria
The SDGs aim to end all forms of hunger and malnutrition by 2030, making sure all people – especially children – have access to sufficient and nutritious food all year round. This involves promoting sustainable agricultural practices: supporting small scale farmers and allowing equal access to land, technology and markets. It also requires international cooperation to ensure investment in infrastructure and technology to improve agricultural productivity. Together with the other goals set out here, we can end hunger by 2030.
