WFP: Ending hunger - 3 things that need to happen after the Paris agreement

18 February 2016

The World Food Programme’s vision is to eradicate hunger by 2030, a bold aim in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs require us to leave nobody behind and to meet the needs of those furthest behind first. The Paris Agreement, reached at COP 21 in December, prioritizes those most vulnerable to climate change, including the 795 million hungry people in the world today...



With disaster risk increasing globally due to increasing vulnerability to natural hazards, it has become obvious that the SDGs will require a risk-sensitive approach to ensure their accelerated achievement and sustainability.

Disaster risk reduction is an integral part of sustainable development and therefore an important element for the achievement of the MDGs.
