SDG 2.3 & 2.4: Sustainable agriculture

The policy priority 2.3 &2.4 knowledge base creates an open platform for those working to achieve sustainable agriculture in line with SDG2 Hub's policy priority for SDG2.3 & 2.4: Prioritise the needs of farmers to develop sustainable and climate resilient farming practices that encourage production of nutritious and diverse foods through greater investment in the following holistic ways: Innovation: Building Resilience; Delivery: Empowering Farmers; Data: Measuring Progress 

  • Audience: Donor countries, implementing countries, relevant agencies, private sector
  • Potential for impact: Funding commitments; awareness of the connected and interrelated partners needed to deliver SDG2.3 and SDG2.4; funding for data from World Bank.
  • Role of Hub: Develop a narrative and toolkit for advocates; support specific donor markets for CGIAR, GAFSP, 50 X 2030 resource mobilisation efforts; support communications and linked events in 2019  

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.

Sustainable agriculture in the SDGs: 

SDG2.3: By 2030, double the agricultural productivity and incomes of small-scale food producers, in particular women, indigenous peoples, family farmers, pastoralists and fishers, including through secure and equal access to land, other productive resources and inputs, knowledge, financial services, markets and opportunities for value addition and non-farm employment. 


SDG2.4: By 2030, ensure sustainable food production systems and implement resilient agricultural practices that increase productivity and production, that help maintain ecosystems, that strengthen capacity for adaptation to climate change, extreme weather, drought, flooding and other disasters and that progressively improve land and soil quality.
