The ambitious goal of ending hunger, achieving nutrition, and promoting sustainable agriculture – SDG2 – will require strong commitment and action at the national level, supported by continuing engagement from the international community. It will also require the mobilization and effective use of resources, particularly financial resources. A new financing framework which aims to channel better public spending at domestic and international level, and leverage responsible private investment is needed. During the Third International Conference on Financing for Sustainable Development a side event entitled “Ending hunger, achieving food security and improved nutrition, and promoting sustainable agriculture – how to make it happen?” organised by three RBAs-FAO, WFP and IFAD, at the UN Headquarters on 17 April, 2015, drew attention to how a financial framework could help to achieve SDG2.
