COVID-19 wiped out 15 years of progress in reducing hunger globally. Investing $33bn MORE per year can reverse this trend and end hunger for good. The ground-breaking Ceres2030 report - reinforced by the PARI and SOFI reports - draws a ten-year roadmap to reverse the downward hunger spiral and has emerged from the UN Food Systems Summit’s Coalition of Action for Zero Hunger. A world without hunger is possible and governments cannot do it alone. More private sector investment is needed, so we’re looking to the private sector to do their part and also inspire other players to act.
The Launch of Zero Hunger, Private Sector Pledge will welcome the first champions of the pledge. We will hear how they are partnering with governments, donors, global and local institutions to drive more effective private investments and how their pledges will contribute to national food systems pathways.
The pledge is being supported by a network of partners including the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition , Grow Africa, Grow Asia, the World Benchmarking Alliance, the World Food Programme, the International Institute for Sustainable Development, the Food and Agriculture Organization and Cornell University.
