Treating malnutrition, in combination with ensuring that children get the right food in the first 1,000 days, is crucial to ensure that children will develop fully. That’s why it’s a key component of the United Nations’s Zero Hunger Challenge, of which CWS is a member and a challenge we gladly accept. The Zero Hunger Challenge singles out comprehensive efforts that aim to help every man, woman and child enjoy their right to adequate nutritious food.
The Zero Hunger Challenge aims for a future where every individual has access to the nutrition they need to lead healthy, productive lives. This requires comprehensive efforts; women are empowered; priority is given to family farming; and food systems everywhere are sustainable and resilient.
The challenge of Zero Hunger means:
- Zero stunted children less than 2 years
- 100% access to adequate food all year round
- All food systems are sustainable
- 100% increase in smallholder productivity and income
- Zero loss or waste of food
Join CWS as we take the Zero Hunger Challenge head on.
