Dear All,

With this interesting discussion now closed, I would like to express my deepest appreciation for the time you dedicated to sharing your SDG-related stories.

In this online discussion we have deliberately invited you to comment on a very openly formulated topic as we did not want to limit you in telling the stories you deemed important.

In my view, the most important result of this exchange is that it underlined once again the complexity of the fight against hunger and malnutrition and the multitude of avenues that we can follow.

Something that many of the examples you shared have in common is that they provided innovative approaches or applied tested solutions in an innovative way. This is encouraging as it showcases the high level of commitment towards realizing SDG2 and the vitality of the development sector, especially at the grassroots level.

The diversity of the examples you shared also underlines the importance of knowledge sharing initiates to help us stay updated and able to learn from each-other.

For this reason we also appreciate the more critical comments you shared as they highlight pitfalls that can jeopardize our success.

Over the next weeks we will analyse your comments in greater detail and might get back to you should we require further information.

Once again, thank you very much!

Max
