Issues related to food and agriculture are comprehensively integrated among the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. SDG1, End poverty, includes targets related to social protection, land rights and resilience, while SDG2 is dedicated to ending hunger, improving food security and nutrition, and promoting sustainable agriculture. The link between food security and natural resources features prominently in SDG14, oceans and marine resources, SDG15, ecosystems, biodiversity, forests and land, as well as SDGs on water, energy, gender, climate, and consumption and production. FAO, which has provided technical support to UN Member States throughout the Post-2015 process, will continue to work with countries and partners in implementing and monitoring the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The SDGs will succeed the 8 Millennium Development Goals at the end of 2015, and are expected to become the main reference for countries’ development policies and programmes for the next 15 years.
