66 million primary school-age children attend classes hungry across the developing world.
795 million people in the world do not have enough food to live a healthy active life.
Around 1 in 8 people in the world, about 842 million people, were estimated to be suffering from chronic hunger.
What does #ZeroHunger mean as a goal?
We have a couple of targets that we are trying to hit by 2030, the world’s major deadline. Meaning, if we hit them, we achieve the overall goal.
1.) No one to be left hungry.
By 2030, end hunger and ensure access by all people, in particular, the poor and people in vulnerable situations, including infants, to safe, nutritious and sufficient food all year!
2.) Everyone has enough of nutritious food to stay healthy.
By 2030, end all forms of malnutrition, including achieving, by 2025, the internationally agreed targets on stunting and wasting in children under 5 years of age, and address the nutritional needs of adolescent girls, pregnant and lactating women and older persons.
3.) Local producers have access to needed resources in order to double their business.
By 2030, double the agricultural productivity and incomes of small-scale food producers, in particular women, indigenous peoples, family farmers, pastoralists, and fishers, including through secure and equal access to land, other productive resources and inputs, knowledge, financial services, markets and opportunities for value addition and non-farm employment.
