End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture
Around the world, 815 million people go to bed hungry each day. In Canada, about 4.8 million or 13% of Canadians do not have reliable access to safe, good-quality, nutritious foods.
That’s not because there’s a scarcity of food. Food production is increasing faster than the global population, and in fact, the world already produces enough to food to feed 10 billion people. The problem is poverty, inequality and environmental degradation.
Sustainable agriculture, forestry and fisheries not only provide nutritious food, these industries also create jobs that benefit entire communities. To end hunger and food insecurity by 2030, we must also end poverty, reduce political instability, and support sustainable natural resource management.
