|#SDGconference | Now @davidnabarro,
a @WorldFoodPrize 2018 laureate, talks about:
“Nutrition is everybody’s business.” “
We have to make sure that food systems
can regenerate and are climate compatible” #ZeroHunger
The conference brought together key stakeholders to discuss their views and contributions for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to take action towards reaching the targets and partnerships. The conference centered around SDG2: end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture and SDG17: create partnerships.
The conference started with a High Level Forum featuring Akinwumi Adesina (president African Development Bank), Paul Polman (CEO Unilever), Etharin Cousin (former executive director World Food Programme) and moderated by Louise O. Fresco (president Wageningen University & Research).
