Advocacy for Food and Nutrition Security
Despite progress made, the level of hunger in the world is still serious with 795 million people continuing to go hungry and two billion suffering from malnutrition according to the estimates made by the Food and Agriculture Organization [FAO] of the United Nations. The reality is that many communities are unable to access food and proper nutrition.As we move into the era of 2030 Agenda  governments should be determined to make rapid advances in ensuring food and nutrition security in view to reach Sustainable Development Goal [SDG] 2: Zero Hunger by 2030. While governments have to develop clear pathways to follow, civil society should participate adequately at all relevant stages of planning and implementing food and nutrition security strategies. In this context, advocacy for inclusive programs that make sure that 'no one is left behind' are very important. Through rights-based approaches, civil society organizations can play a crucial role in regard to the fulfilment of the human right to adequate food.
