Nutrition in resource-limited settings
The world is still a long way from achieving Zero Hunger by 2030. To achieve food security, the level of technological development, as well as the economic, legal, and social assets of cultivators, varies among groups.
Man-made conflicts, climate change, and economic downturns are all factors that contribute to hunger.
With over a quarter of a billion people potentially on the verge of starvation, immediate action is required to provide food and humanitarian relief to the most vulnerable regions. Simultaneously, a fundamental shift in the global food and agriculture systems is required if we are to feed the more than 690 million hungry people. Increasing agricultural productivity and long-term food production is critical for mitigating the dangers of hunger.
Food insecurity has been created in the majority of African countries as a result of conflict, underpinning the need to establish political and financial commitments to improve nutrition in the midst of these conflicts.
Innovations in institutional reforms, strict implementation measures, and quality monitoring and evaluation of progress in people-feeding strategies are urgently needed to avert the impending consequences of natural disasters and global public health challenges, as well as the long-term goal of an empty planet.
Theorized suggestions abound on the possibility of eradicating hunger in all LMICs by 2030, but implementation and actualization of such suggestions may remain elusive and a mirage until all stakeholders take concrete action toward the actualization of zero hunger among LMIC populations.
How do we improve Coordinated investments in social protection, as well as public and private efforts to increase investment levels in productive sectors?
Climate-smart agriculture employs strategies such as climate information services, agricultural insurance, agroforestry, water harvesting techniques, and integrated soil fertility management practices to combat climate change while also providing food for people.
Foreign market-focused commercially based large-scale mono-crop intensified cultivation and small holder farming appear to lack the capacity to feed the people, and thus the time has come for innovations to improve these to be used to save the hungry from accelerating to an empty planet.
