Zero Hunger Challenge

In Rio this week, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will launch his new Zero Hunger Challenge. One billion people don’t have enough to eat and the Secretary-General wants to see an end to hunger in his lifetime.

His challenge has 5 objectives:

1. A world where everyone has access to enough nutritious food all year round.

2. No more malnutrition in pregnancy and early childhood: an end to the tragedy of childhood stunting.

3. All food systems sustainable — everywhere

4. Greater opportunity for smallholder farmers — especially women – who produce most of the world’s food — so that they are empowered to double their productivity and income

5. Cut losses of food after production, stop wasting food and consume responsibly
