New booklet: EU achievements in food and nutrition security and sustainable agriculture, 2014-2018
The EU is strongly committed to achieving Sustainable Development Goal 2 (Zero Hunger) and has been working with partners to collectively step up support to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture. As reaffirmed in the EU Consensus on Development, agricultural and rural development are key to reducing poverty, boosting food and nutrition security, stimulating economic growth and protecting the environment, all within the context of climate change. They can also play a major role in promoting gender equality and empowering women and girls. This booklet describes how the EU is supporting countries and institutions to address numerous challenges and seize opportunities to further their development.
