The Post-2015 Development Agenda and the Millennium Development Goals

The post-2015 development agenda is a United Nations-led process aimed at helping member states define a global development framework that will succeed the 8 Millennium Development Goals when they reach their target date at the end of 2015. At the same time as accelerating efforts to meet MDG targets, FAO has embraced the post-2015 process, identifying 14 thematic areas in which it can support member states in arriving at new goals.

  Of the 30 000 edible plants, just 4 – wheat, rice, maize and potatoes – provide 60 percent of the world population’s energy intake. Using such a small number of species increases the vulnerability of agriculture systems and puts food security and nutrition at risk.
