FAO

Brief, 2019

With the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG2) of 2015, countries pledged to end hunger everywhere by 2030 through decisive national action and international and regional cooperation. If this global goal is to be achieved, affirmative and creative actions are needed on the part of all countries. Building on the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights (Banjul Charter) and other regional human rights instruments, African countries committed to ensure food security for all people with the Malabo Declaration of 2014.
