Please see below change concerning the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Goal 2 to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.

 

Poor nutrition causes 45% of deaths in kids under five each year.

The depth of the food deficit (in kilocalories per person per day) remains very serious in many parts of the world.

A result of poor diets over long periods is a retardation of growth – the height of children is too small for their age. This is referred to as stunted growth. Children with stunted growth are at greater risk for illness and death.

 

Quote 2722

Make people believe that we can send poverty to museums. When I talk about it, people laugh and say, "It's impossible." But when you don't believe something, you can't achieve it. You have to imagine and make that imagination achievable - Muhammad Yunus, http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1929228-2,00.html#ixzz…
