SDG-Conference: Towards Zero Hunger - Partnerships for impact
Wageningen University & Research will host the international conference 'Towards zero hunger: Partnerships for impact’ in Wageningen, the Netherlands, on 30 and 31 August 2018. The conference centres around Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture (SDG 2 - Zero hunger) and create partnerships (SDG 17 - Partnerships for the goals).
To reach zero hunger, new sustainable, inclusive and resilient food systems matching local needs and circumstances and taking into account higher scale-levels conditionsare required. Designing and promoting such solutions requires the involvement of all parties that are playing a role in the food system, i.e. governments, research, industry, civil society, and financial institutions. This conference brings together key stakeholders to discuss their views and contributions for achieving the SDGs, and to take action towards reaching the targets. The two-day conference is based on three topics; "Evidence base for healthy, sustainable and inclusive food systems", "Balancing synergies and trade-offs between SDGs", and "Governance and SDGs". The outputs of these three themes lead into "Food system transformation pathways to achieve the SDGs". The outputs of these three themes lead into ”Food system transformation pathways to achieve the SDGs". These pathways will be developed in the final session through an interactive process with the participants of the various stakeholder groups. The aim of the pathways is to connect the aspirational nature of the goals to tangible actions and work in practice to contribute to realisation of the SDGs.
