Ending poverty and hunger by 2030: an agenda for the global food system

With 800 million people going to bed hungry every night, countries combatting hunger must build better food systems that raise agricultural productivity in rural areas, invest in improving nutritional outcomes for young children and pregnant women, and boost climate-smart agriculture that can withstand a warmer planet, says a World Bank Group report titled “Ending Poverty and Hunger by 2030: An Agenda for the Global Food System.” This report is critically important because it provides an overview of key actions that should be taken to end widespread hunger. Countries should ensure farmers have access to markets, receive fair value for crops, and grow foods that will withstand the rigors of a changing climate. They should invest in food, health, and care for young children and pregnant women, and improve access to nutritious food.
