Registration is now open. Please RSVP at the following link: bit.ly/zerohungerchallenge

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development sets us on a path for comprehensive, integrated and universal transformation. The Sustainable Development Goals will not be achieved without ending hunger and malnutrition, or in the absence of sustainable, inclusive and resilient, climate-compatible agriculture and food systems that encompass both rural and urban areas. At the same time, advances across the 2030 Agenda will be essential to achieving a Zero Hunger world. 

The Zero Hunger Challenge was launched by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in 2012. The ZHC reflects five elements from within the SDGs, which taken together, can end hunger, eliminate all forms of malnutrition and build inclusive and sustainable food systems. The Global Movement for Zero Hunger offers a platform to accelerate global action, bringing together all stakeholders to communicate the importance of inclusive, productive, sustainable and resilient food and agriculture systems to deliver on the promise of the 2030 Agenda. It also serves to amplify collective action to ensure food security and nutrition for all people.
