The United Nations Zero Hunger Challenge attempts to eliminate world hunger by supporting equality of opportunity, decent work, rural development, agricultural investments, and social protection. Here is a brief overview the five strategic objectives of the UN Zero Hunger Challenge.
– Sustainable food systems: This initiative supports sustainability by pursuing cross-sector policy coherence, establishing sustainability standards, and implementing responsible governance of natural resources.
– Zero stunted children under 2 years of age: Because the first 1,000 days of life represent such a valuable developmental window, this program supports clean water, sanitation, and nutrition-based health care for mothers.
– Access to food: Through programs such as social protection floors and targeted safety nets, this initiative attempts to stabilize food supplies and ensure year-round access to adequate food.
– Zero food waste: By minimizing food loss due to improper storage or waste by retailers and consumers, this project aims to maximize the effectiveness of all food.
– Increase in smallholder productivity: The UN Zero Hunger Challenge emphasizes the reduction of rural poverty by encouraging decent work, supporting agricultural innovation, and improving common access to natural resources.
