Accelerating the End of Hunger and Malnutrition

Improving food security and nutrition is critical to meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), but the world is not on track to end hunger and malnutrition by 2030. How can we accelerate progress in transforming our agri-food systems to meet the needs of the hungry and malnourished?

To answer this question, the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) have organized a global event to accelerate progress to end hunger and malnutrition. This event is aligned with the imperatives of the Compact2025 initiative and the UN Decade of Action on Nutrition to make accelerated progress on hunger and undernutrition by 2025 to pave the way for achieving all the SDGs.

Join WorldFish Value Chains and Nutrition expert, Dr. Shakuntala Thilsted speech on "How Fish Could Play A Stronger Role To Achieve Globally Set Goals" during the parallel sessions on Day 2 of the Conference.

Read article from Ben Belton, author at WorldFish blog on how farmed fish can help to fight world hunger.
