How is innovation disrupting Global Hunger?
1 in 9 people still goes to bed hungry every night. Right now there are 4 famines active in the world and fulfilling basic food security needs are a great challenge. As the world population continues to grow, much more effort and innovation will be urgently needed in order to sustainably increase agricultural production, improve the global supply chain, decrease food losses and waste, and ensure that all who are suffering from hunger and malnutrition have access to nutritious food. So how do we reach SDG 2, a world without hunger, by 2030?
Bernhard Kowatsch, Head of the Innovation Accelerator at the UN World Food Programme (WFP), explains how innovation is leading to real change. The WFP is the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. Through its Innovation Accelerator WFP supports entrepreneurs & start-ups for #ZeroHunger innovations worldwide.
