On September 25th, leaders from every country in the world committed to 17 Global Goals to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice and address climate change. It is increasingly acknowledged that without greater attention to improving nutrition achieving many of the Global Goals will not be possible.
As part of the Goal 2 to End Hunger and Improve Nutrition, governments adopted a historic target to end malnutrition in all its forms by the year 2030. This target is noteworthy and ambitious as it is now estimated that one in three people on the planet is undernourished, obese, micronutrient deficient or some combination of all three.
1,000 Days and many of its partners are now calling on world leaders to prioritize nutrition in their budgets in order to reach this ambitious target. You can join in this call to action here.
