FAO and IFPRI Rising to the Challenge of Ending Hunger and Malnutrition


20/12/2018 - 

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. All actors must accelerate progress in transforming agri-food systems to meet the needs of the hungry and malnourished.

To address this challenge, on 28-30 November 2018 FAO and IFPRI organized a global event in Bangkok to accelerate progress to end hunger and nutrition. This event aligned to the Compact2025 initiative and the UN Decade of Action on Nutrition. The event brought together decision makers, practitioners, researchers and other stakeholders around the world to highlight success stories and lessons learned; explore new ideas and innovations to disrupt business-as-usual; identify opportunities to scale up successful actions; and catalyze cross-sectoral learning and cooperation.
