The Compact2025 team conducted a literature review on the benefits of ending hunger and malnutrition, identifying four major areas of benefits: economic, health, social, and education. The review summarizes key findings and discusses gaps in the current research. A summary note and table of findings from each resource are available. All of the literature reviewed can be found on the Compact2025 Resources page.
