Getting ready for World Food Day 2018

World Food Day is celebrated around the world every year and this time the theme is achieving Sustainable Devlopment Goal 2: Zero Hunger until 2030.

Conflict, climate, the economy, inequality. These are just some of the reasons why the goal of a Zero Hunger world may seem more difficult to achieve than before,  and tackling malnutrition, in all its forms, is increasingly complicated by overweight and obesity. But experience has shown that food security and nutrition can make great strides when countries, institutions and people work together.

This is the moment to redouble efforts to achieve the globally-agreed goal of Zero Hunger, as spelled out in Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Taking action is not an option. It is a necessary step to a truly sustainable future for all.

Join the celebration on October 16!
