The Impact of Food Systems and Nutrition Patterns on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)


The global food system faces unprecedented challenges. Today, in the world 815 million people are starving while 2.1 billion people are obese or overweight, 1/3 of the global food production is wasted along the food chain, from field to table and a large portion of crop and food production is funneled into animal feed and biofuels despite widespread hunger.
