A world without hunger is possible – What must be done

Recommendations for European action on the path to achieving SDG 2

EWOH

Hunger is still part of the daily lives of millions of people worldwide, and one of the big challenges of our time. However, recent research has shown that a world without hunger continues to be possible – if we step up our efforts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thus, the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, would like to invite you to the event

 

A world without hunger is possible – What must be done
Recommendations for European action on the path to achieving SDG 2
13 October 2020 – 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

 

At this online event, Minister Gerd Müller and a number of experts will be discussing what steps have to be taken to address hunger and malnutrition.  The focus will be on the findings of two recent studies:

  • ‘Ceres2030 – Sustainable Solutions to End Hunger’ by Cornell University, the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), and the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD)
  • ‘Investment Needs and Policy Action Opportunities for Reaching a World without Hunger (SDG 2)’ by the Center for Development Research (ZEF) in cooperation with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)

The aim of the event is to provide new impulses for the achievement of SDG2 in the run-up to World Food Day on October 16, 2020, and to translate these into recommendations for action and solutions from the international community to the European Commission.
