Sustainable Development Goal 2 addresses a fundamental need: access to nutritious and healthy food for everyone in a sustainable manner. This is one of the most overarching goals of the 2030 Agenda, with direct implications on the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental. It is also a crucial factor in poverty eradication.
It is time to rethink how we grow, share and consume our food. If done right, agriculture, forestry and fisheries can provide nutritious food for all while providing an adequate source of income to producers. But achieving food security cannot be reached by increasing food production alone. Equally important factors are access to technology and financial services, equitable land rights, productive investment, well-functioning markets and the protection of small food producers.
UNCTAD contributes to the alleviation of hunger through its work on commodities, financial products geared to the agricultural sector, and investment in agriculture and on rural development in Least developed country to support sustainable food production and resilient agriculture.
