GOAL OF THE MONTH

With an additional 130 million people at risk of acute hunger by the end of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, November’s editorial package focuses on one of the most pressing issues – hunger, food and nutrition. Resources from across the UN system provide insights and data, also highlighting the global movement to end food loss and food waste, with initiatives that are critical to recovery and building resilience. Looking head to 2021, the Food Systems Summit to be convened by the UN Secretary-General is expected to launch bold new actions to transform the way the world produces and consumes food, delivering progress on all 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
