News | 29 June 2020 | Alf Tore Bergsli

The world is facing major nutritional challenges, with millions of people suffering from starvation or malnutrition. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs have asked Fafo to update our knowledge about these issues and how Norwegian aid and policy could be optimized to helt.

The report, written by Ellen Cecilie Andresen and Anne Hatløy, finds that through increasing its nutrition efforts, Norway can help achieve Sustainable Development Goal 2, which aims to eradicate hunger and all forms of malnutrition by 2030. They also advice Norway to support governments, civil societies, and national/local efforts that engage in nutrition-specific interventions to reduce all forms of malnutrition, as well as organisations and processes that promote nutritional sensitivity through all parts of the food system to ensure better access to varied, healthy and sustainable food for more people.
