Success in ending hunger and undernutrition depends on country-owned and country-led strategies and investments. On October 4, 2017, the International Food Policy Research Institute organized two events in Dhaka, Bangladesh, bringing together stakeholders to discuss the critical poverty, hunger, and malnutrition issues that the country faces and chart a path forward to accelerate progress.
A recent South-South learning event organized by IFPRI and Mahidol University in Bangkok, Thailand, shared lessons from Thailand’s experience fighting hunger and undernutrition with Asian and African countries including Compact2025 focal countries Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Malawi, and Rwanda.
Global leaders gathered to discuss how progress to end hunger and undernutrition by 2025 can be accelerated and sustained during a special event convened by Compact2025 in Washington, D.C. on October 6, 2016.
Hunger and undernutrition persist as major global challenges, yet some countries have proven successful at rapidly reducing both.
