Name Asia and the Pacific Regional Overview of Food Security and Nutrition 2018 – Accelerating progress towards the SDGs

Progress in reducing undernourishment has slowed tremendously. FAO’s estimates show that the number of hungry people has barely changed during the past two years, making it increasingly di cult to achieve the Zero Hunger target of SDG 2. The situation is similarly challenging in nutrition and health areas, where a large majority of countries in the region risk missing the SDG and World Health Assembly targets. These developments in food security and nutrition are at odds with the region’s continuing high level of economic growth.
