Accelerating the End of Hunger and Malnutrition

Improving food security and nutrition is critical to meeting the Sustainable Development Goals, but the world is not on track to end hunger and malnutrition by 2030. How can we accelerate progress in transforming our food systems to meet the needs of the hungry and malnourished?

The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) propose to organize a global event to accelerate progress to end hunger and malnutrition. During the event, distinguished decision makers, practitioners, researchers, and other stakeholders will share evidence and lessons learned from around the world on food system transformation for reducing hunger and malnutrition. They will explore opportunities for scaling up successful actions and stimulating innovations that can disrupt business-as-usual to build further momentum and accelerate progress.
