UN Sustainable Development Goals: Zero Hunger

Open seminar hosted by the Institute of International Affairs at the University of Iceland and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs on September 12 from 12:00 to 13:00 at the National Museum

UN Sustainable Development Goals: Zero Hunger

The global community agreed in September 2015 on the Sustainable Development Agenda – a plan of action to dramatically improve the lives of people and safeguard the future of our planet. The second goal, Zero Hunger, pledges to End Hunger, Achieve Food Security, Improve Nutrition and Promote Sustainable Agriculture. To end hunger once and for all, its causes – from conflict to climate change and everything in between – must be addressed.

Anne Poulsen, Director of the UN World Food Programme’s Nordic Office (Denmark), discusses WFP’s role in the fight against hunger and how to achieve Zero Hunger by 2030.

Moderator: Vera Knútsdóttir, Director of the United Nations Association of Iceland

The seminar will be held in English and is open to all.
