In September 2015, the United Nations adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – a set of 17 global goals with specific targets aimed at ending poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring prosperity for all by 2030.
However, improving nutrition goes beyond SDG2 alone and is linked to each of the SDGs and can play a transformational role in driving sustainable development. Making headway against undernutrition will have wide-reaching consequences for improving health and working to end poverty. To make progress on sustainable development it is therefore essential to make progress on nutrition.
Similarly, achieving this goal will depend on progress across many of the other SDGs, including those aimed at clean water and sanitation, renewable energy, education and gender equality.
