Zero Hunger

End hunger, achieve food security and better nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture.


Malnutrition and hunger prevent sustainable global development. Hungry people are also more likely to suffer from disease and thus cannot support and feed their families. According to Welthungerhilfe, more than 800 million people worldwide suffer from hunger, the vast majority of them in developing countries.
In order to combat hunger worldwide and feed the world's population, which will continue to grow by 2050 – from 8 billion to 9.7 billion people today – a changed, more efficient and more sustainable management of the available resources on land, in the seas and rivers is necessary, in addition to the eradication of poverty.
