Concise Guides to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
SDG2 links food security, nutrition and a sustainable but climate resilient agriculture. This multi-dimensional goal encompasses several specific targets and indicators, aimed at ending hunger, improving nutrition and achieving food security through sustainable and resilient agriculture and income increase.

This book examines the idea that to achieve global food security, we need to exponentially increase food production over the coming decades. Identifying a consensus that we need an agriculture that can multi-functionally increase food production while simultaneously enhancing nutrition, social and environmental goals, the book argues that if food sources are not able to contribute to a balanced, nutritious diet, then the implications for health and productivity of the population could be significant. It is imperative that SDG2 is met in all regions of the world for a vibrant and healthy society, and this requires both global and local commitment.
