Who we are and our collaborative plan to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture by 2030.
The SDG2 Advocacy Hub coordinates global campaigning and advocacy to achieve Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2: To end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture by 2030.
The Hub brings together NGOs, advocacy groups, civil society, the private sector and UN agencies to share expertise, ideas, and to collaborate on campaigns so that our overall impact as a community of influencers is increased.
With 17 Sustainable Development Goals to achieve by 2030, the Hub offers a new game plan – a way of working that engages the largest group of diverse actors to work together on SDG2 priorities, while focusing on individual specialist areas of work that will ultimately meet the targets.
The Sustainable development Goals and SDG2: Zero Hunger
Adopted by all countries on September 25th 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector and civil society.
How the Hub works
The Hub offers strategic guidance on public engagement to the entire community working in and around SDG 2 by providing direction around global campaigns and support for grass roots, country-level initiatives.
'Ending hunger, and achieving food security and better nutrition, is one of the most important building blocks of a world in which every child can survive, learn and be safe. The 2030 food and hunger targets can be reached, but only if governments, civil society and the private sector work together to drive proven solutions, and create accountability for results.'
