The "next big push" in combatting hunger is creating a sustainable system of agriculture that empowers communities around the world. Here UN General Director Ban Ki-Moon gives the five objectives of the "Zero Hunger Challenge."
The five objectives of the "Zero Hunger Challenge" are:
1. A world where everyone has access to enough nutritious food all year round.
2. No more malnutrition in pregnancy and early childhood: an end to the tragedy of childhood stunting.
3. All food systems sustainable - everywhere.
4. Greater opportunity for smallholder farmers - especially women - who produce most of the world's food - so that they are empowered to double their productivity and income.
5. Cut losses of food after production, stop wasting food and consume responsibly."
