UNSDG Goal 2: Zero Hunger
In the West African country of Ghana, many people from farming backgrounds are forced to find new ways to survive, as droughts, floods and erratic weather patterns upend age-old agricultural practices. According to the World Food Programme, 135 million suffer from acute hunger largely due to man-made conflicts, climate change and economic downturns. Goal 2: Zero Hunger
The world is not on track to achieve Zero Hunger by 2030. With more than a quarter of a billion people potentially at the brink of starvation, swift action needs to be taken to provide food and humanitarian relief to the most at-risk regions.
We can make changes in your own life—at home, at work and in the community—by supporting local farmers or markets and making sustainable food choices, supporting good nutrition for all, and fighting food waste. We can also use our power as a consumer and voter, demanding businesses and governments make the choices and changes that will make Zero Hunger a reality.
