“Poor diets are not a personal matter – they are a result of inequities and inequalities in our food systems”, says Venkatesh Mannar, Co-Chair of the 2020 Global Nutrition Report (GNR).
Published last week, this year’s report on the state of global nutrition warns of the vast inequalities in nutrition outcomes that hinder progress on tackling malnutrition – a reality that has and will continue to be further compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic.
A week after the launch, the SDG2 Advocacy Hub gathered a diverse group of voices across climate, nutrition, agriculture and food to further tease out the food systems themes in the 2020 GNR. We asked speakers to discuss how food systems inequities are limiting progress on nutrition and SDG2 more broadly. Speakers also identified actions to build more equitable food systems to end malnutrition and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
Big thanks to our speakers UN Special Envoy Agnes Kalibata, Founder of EAT Gunhild Stordalen, President of the World Farmer’s Organisation Theo de Jager, Food Policy Advisor and Chef Sam Kass, and Co-Chair Venkatesh Mannar for sharing their insights with the SDG2 community and beyond.
