Achieving Zero Hunger - The critical role of investments in social protection and agriculture (second edition)
This paper provides estimates of investment costs, both public and private, required to eliminate chronic dietary energy deficits, or to achieve zero hunger by 2030. This target is consistent with achieving both the Sustainable Development Goal 2, to eliminate hunger by 2030, and the Sustainable Development Goal 1, to eradicate poverty. The study adopts a reference 'baseline' scenario, reflecting a business as usual situation, to estimate the additional investment requirements. In this scenario, around 650 million people will still suffer from hunger in 2030.
