Improving food security and nutrition is critical to meeting the Sustainable Development Goals, but the world is not on track to end hunger and malnutrition by 2030. How can we accelerate progress in transforming our agri-food systems to meet the needs of the hungry and malnourished? IFPRI and FAO join hands to convene global leaders in Bangkok, November 28-30, to accelerate progress toward ending hunger and malnutrition by learning from success stories, exploring new ideas and innovations, using the power of cross-sector collaboration and strengthening the knowledge base.
