Researchers from the University of Goettingen and European Commission have found that the burden of global chronic hunger has more than halved since 1990. Economic growth is a major determinant that reduced the burden of hunger, but reducing the burden of hidden hunger requires additional interventions at the micro level.
Additional highlights from this week’s Compact2025 News in Brief include:
- The Government of Rwanda and FAO have announced plans to develop simple dietary guidelines to educate the public about nutrition.
- A gender analysis of impact evaluations for nutrition-sensitive agricultural programs provides recommendations to enhance the effectiveness of agriculture-to-nutrition pathways.
- The SDG Academy offers a free course on “Feeding a Hungry Planet: Agriculture, Nutrition and Sustainability” that launches on April 16.
