The United Nations launched its 17 Sustainable Development Goals this year to end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and tackle climate change by 2030. One of the 17 SDGs is “Zero Hunger”. This goal has five visions: (1) sustainable food systems from production to consumption; (2) end rural poverty by doubling small scale producer incomes and productivity; (3) adapt all food systems to eliminate loss or waste of food; (4) access adequate food and healthy diets for all people all year round; and, (5) end malnutrition in all its forms.
This term, our theme ties in with one of the Sustainable Development Goals which is “Zero Hunger” with focus on one of its vision: to end malnutrition in all its forms.
