Objectives of the UN Zero Hunger Challenge

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.
