Zero Hunger: Transforming our Food Systems to transform our world
The zero hunger challenge was launched by United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in 2012. The Zero Hunger vision reflects five elements from within the SDGs, which taken together, can end hunger, eliminate all forms of malnutrition, and build inclusive and sustainable food systems.
1. All Food Systems are Sustainable: From Production to Consumption - Sustainable food systems deliver food security and nutrition for all in such a way that the economic, social and environmental bases to generate food security and nutrition for future generations are not compromised. The effects of climate change will require sustainable and climate-compatible agriculture practices.
2. An End to Rural Poverty: Double Small-scale Producer Incomes & Productivity - Ending rural poverty will require a determined effort to increase the income of the small-scale producers. Small-scale producers also hold the key to sustainably feeding a growing global population. This will involve improving people’s wellbeing through sustainable livelihoods: increasing smallholders’ income and productivity and decent rural employment.
For us at JCI Ikeja we have decided to pick the second element which is a reflection of the Zero Hunger according to United Nations SG (Ban Ki-moon) by empowering people through the alleviation of poverty by doubling small-scale Producer Incomes and Productivity.
We have carefully sourced for various skill acquisition centres willing and ready to absorb individuals finding it difficult to feed themselves and their families daily, we will be assigning them to various skill centers and provide them with kits required to start up the business after the completion of the Program
