Food and nutrition
After many years in decline, hunger is on the rise again in almost all regions globally, and low-income countries in Africa and Asia continue to bear the most outstanding share of malnutrition. Undernutrition in children accounts for 45 per cent of all child deaths and contributes to the stunting of children. Additionally, obesity is on the rise, contributing to 4 million deaths globally. Agriculture has a vital role to play in improving nutrition. Through agriculture, we can increase access to healthy and nutritious food and ensure dietary diversity.
