Zero hunger

See all the Goals

End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture

When you’re hungry it’s hard to think about much else. You can’t concentrate at school or at work, especially if you don’t know where your next meal will come from.

That’s the daily reality for 795 million people – or 1 in 9 of us – even though there’s enough food in the world for everyone. But this goal isn’t just about having enough food, it’s also about getting the nutrients we need to stay healthy. Almost half of all children who die before their 5th birthday are malnourished. It might surprise you to know that most of the world’s malnourished people are also producers of food – so investing in sustainable agriculture and supporting women farmers especially, will help us reach this goal.

We can do this – hunger is on the way down with 216 million less hungry people than in 1990. But this is an issue that needs tackling from lots of directions.

Spread the word

Stand as ONE

World leaders have agreed to 17 Global Goals that would mean a better life for all of us. The Goals are a plan to build a world where children don't go to bed hungry, where girls get the same opportunity to thrive as boys, and where people don't die of preventable diseases. It's one of the most incredible to-do lists ever written - but now we need to turn words into action.

As long as poverty, injustice and gross inequality exist in our world, none of us can truly rest.

Nelson Mandela

Mandela's words represent what it means to be a ONE member and at the birth of these ambitious new goals, we will not rest until they are achieved. Stand with more than 9 million others and in Mandela's honour - pledge to use your voice. We know it has power to change lives and bring about a better world for all of us, as ONE.
