We are discussing opportunities for achieving more effective global interventions to reverse the negative trend on hunger and make progress on Sustainable Development Goal 2 (SDG2) in the decade to 2030. This includes the German-initiated proposal for an SDG2 event in 2020, and the Government of Japan’s preparations for the 2020 Nutrition for Growth Summit.

In August, senior DFID officials met with senior counterparts in the German Federal Ministry for Economic Development and Cooperation (BMZ) to consider options for creating alliances on SDG2 alliances, in particular in fragile and conflict-affected geographies and in climate-vulnerable areas.
