Goal 2: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture

2 - Zero hunger

Extreme hunger and malnutrition remains a barrier to sustainable development. Hunger and malnutrition mean less productive individuals, who are more prone to disease and thus often unable to earn more and improve their livelihoods. There are nearly 800 million people who suffer from hunger worldwide, the vast majority in developing countries. 

By supporting high quality carbon finance projects, businesses can deliver essential emission reductions and support low carbon sustainable development in areas most in need.

Example carbon finance project activities that aim to address food security:
  • Improve food security through training on conservation farming techniques to improve the quality and productivity of land and increase crop yields, removing the need for shifting cultivation and slash and burn techniques (Targets 2.3 and 2.4)
  • Diversify food supply with training and best practice sharing on alternative crops, livestock rearing, and planting fruit and nut trees to ensure sustainable land use is more economically attractive to forest destruction (Targets 2.3 and 2.4)
     

Projects that align with SDG 2: Zero hunger

A number of carbon finance projects support households and communities to increase and diversify food production, building local capacity and resilience to climate change.

Below are a sample of such projects. If you'd like to find out more about a particular project, follow the link.
