The SDG2 Advocacy Hub coordinates global campaigning and advocacy to achieve SDG2: To end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture by 2030.
The Hub’s mission is to bring 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. Formed in 2016, the Hub has grown to include over 120 organisations.
With 17 Sustainable Development Goals to achieve by 2030, the Hub offers a unique game plan – a way of working that engages a large group of diverse actors to collaborate together on SDG2 priorities, while also focusing on individual specialist areas that will ultimately help meet the targets.
A New Consensus with Small-Scale Food Producers
The Consensus aims to elevate small-scale food producers’ voices and their policy priorities, and align stakeholders around evidence-based solutions. It represents an effort to increase support for small-scale farmers and food producers as they navigate multiple, interconnected pressures and shocks.
The Global Food Crisis
The war in Ukraine is ongoing. Climate and other shocks continue to test an already strained humanitarian infrastructure, affecting food and commodity supplies. Food prices are still high and volatile. The debt crisis in many countries is hindering government action.
SDG2 Policy Priorities
The SDG2 Advocacy Hub commits to the principles listed below as a guide to making the most significant progress towards SDG2. All efforts should promote, embody or enable the Policy Priorities.
Good Food For All
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals known as the Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs. These goals have the power to create a better world by 2030, by ending poverty, fighting inequality and addressing the urgency of climate change. Good food is a foundation for everything, providing the energy needed to fight for a better future for everyone, everywhere. Without good food, no other progress is possible.
The Chefs’ Manifesto
The SDG2 Advocacy Hub facilitates the Chefs’ Manifesto, a community of 1200+ chefs from 92 countries, equipped with a simple set of actions to drive progress towards more sustainable food systems. We believe chefs can be powerful advocates for a better food future – inspiring people to make changes in their kitchens and communities and empowering them to call on governments and companies to also play their part.
Hungry for Action
The Hungry for Action campaign calls for both urgent humanitarian action as well as long-term systemic change to save lives now, build resilience and secure the future. The global campaign brings together civil society organisations and campaigners from across the climate, nutrition, debt, food security and food systems communities, and aims to raise the global food crisis to the top of the agenda, to secure vital financial reforms to break the cycle of crises.
Beans is How
Beans is How is a campaign to double global bean consumption by 2028. The campaign will look to amplify and make visible the importance of beans as a simple, affordable solution to our global financial, health and climate problems while uplifting policy and academic research, and galvanising significant stakeholder action to reach our ambitious targets and goals.
