Research and policy to end hunger and promote sustainable agriculture

Today more than 800 million people around the world suffer from chronic hunger and about 2 billion from under-nutrition. This failure by humanity is challenged in the UN Sustainability Development Goal (SDG) number 2: "End hunger, achieve food security and improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture".

The AgriFoSe2030-program directly targets the SDG2 in low-income countries through a science-based approach on local, regional and global scales. AgriFoSe2030 contributes to sustainable intensification of agriculture for increased food production on existing agricultural land; the aim is to do so by transforming practices toward more efficient use of human, financial and natural resources.
