The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), at its 73rd session in December 2018, endorsed the request made by the Permanent Representation of Burkina Faso for an annual observance of a World Pulses Day on 10 February. UNGA invited (A/RES/73/251) FAO to facilitate the observance of World Pulses Day. To mark the upcoming celebration, the event will be held on Thursday, 8 February 2024 with the objective of raising awareness about pulses and highlight their critical role in addressing the challenges of food security and global soil health, while improving human health and nutrition, and contributing to multiple Sustainable Development Goals, namely: Zero hunger (SDG-2); Good health and well-being (SDG-3); Responsible consumption and production (SDG-12) and Climate action (SDG-13).
