Food Security and Nutrition
Food security and adequate nutrition are among the basic needs of every human being. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development proposes a worldwide reexamine on the best way to eradicate poverty and hunger, and draws a line in the sand: poverty and hunger should end within 15 years.Only by aligning their efforts and strengths can countries wipe out the root causes that keep the hungry, food insecure and malnourished, trapped in a vicious circle of chronic deprivation.Hunger and malnutrition lead to various diseases, affects livelihood and is a barrier towards individual productivity.
Although food is a fundamental human right but according to a UN report globally one in nine people are undernourished today which means around 800 million people are suffering from hunger and malnutrition. Coping with food insufficiency and nutrition deficiency is becoming even more challenging not only because of insufficient food production, lack of accessibility and availability of food and unstable food supplies but also due to the adverse effects of increasing global climate change. In order to ensure food security and nutrition it is essential to ensure physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food for all people, at all times to meet their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life.
