The second SDG has a very ambitious goal: put an end to hunger, achieve food security and the improvement of nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture..
It may look hard: our ground, water, oceans, Woods, and biodiversity are affected and degraded every day, and things like climate change put pressure on our limited resources.
But, since the United Nations claimed “if it’s done right, agriculture, silviculture, and fish farms can provide us all with nutritive food and generate decent incomes, while the rural people development and environmental protection are supported”.
It means: even if it looks difficult, we can achieve the Zero Hunger goal in the world.
