SDG 2.1: End hunger

The policy priority 2.1 knowledge base creates an open platform for those working to end hunger in line with the SDG2 Hub's policy priority for 2.1: Funding for current emergencies, highlighting links to climate and conflict. 

  • Audience: Donor countries 
  • Role of SDG2 Hub: Amplify and share messages as needed; support lobbying at identified moments through partners
  • Potential for impact: Sufficient funding commitments for response

This knowledge base will continue to grow and be updated regularly with further updates, news and resources. Please reach out to Charlotte ( with any additions to this platform.

Case Studies 


UKThe UK Government has committed itself to “working tirelessly for the full implementation” of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the UK, as well as overseas, but there continues to be a “doughnut-shaped hole” in domestic implementation of the SDGs. We support UKSSD’s conclusion that “while there is an enormous amount to celebrate, the most vulnerable places and people in our society are increasingly being left behind.” This report uses SDG 2: Zero Hunger, as a case study through which to review Government’s broader progress against the domestic implementation of the SDGs.


citedThe papers in this compilation examine the linkages between SDG 2 and policies affecting trade and markets, and seek to identify opportunities for action in three separate policymaking and negotiating processes: the G20, the World Trade Organization, and the evolving network of preferential trade agreements. As such, they are intended to contribute to discussions on how these three separate policy processes can best support the achievement of Agenda 2030 objectives, and SDG 2 in particular; and also to the reflections among the sustainable development community on the relevance of trade policy for progress towards the global goals.



faoDuring the previous decade there has been an increased focus on the role of food security in conflict processes, both in the academic and policy communities. While the policy community has pushed forward with new programs, the academic debate about the causal linkages between food security and conflict remains debated. This article emphasizes the endogeneity that characterizes the coupling between food (in)security and violent conflict. We make three contributions.




Food and nutrition insecurity are becoming increasingly concentrated in conflict-affected countries, affecting millions of people. Policies and interventions that build resilience to these shocks have the power to not only limit the breadth and depth of conflict and violence around the world, but also strengthen national-level governance systems and institutions.







This report provides United Nations Security Council (UNSC) members with an overview of the numbers of people in acute need of emergency food, nutrition and livelihood assistance in 22 countries or territories affected by conflict. It analyses the factors driving food insecurity and examines if those factors are a consequence of conflict and/or if they are driving further tension.
