G7 commits to lifting 500 million people out of hunger and malnutrition by 2030

The G7 Summit closed this afternoon in Krün, Germany, and the leaders announced their commitment to continue and build upon a wide range of interventions for food security and nutrition. As part of a broad effort involving partner countries and international actors, the G7 aims to lift 500 million people in developing countries out of hunger and malnutrition by 2030.

Proposed efforts focus on supporting dynamic rural transformations, promoting responsible investment and sustainable agriculture, and fostering multisectoral approaches to nutrition. The group aims to safeguard food security and nutrition in conflicts and crisis, and ensure its actions continue to empower women, smallholders, and family farmers as well as advancing and supporting sustainable agriculture and food value chains.

For more details, the G7's Broad Food Security and Nutrition Development Approach is outlined starting on page 10 of the annex to the Leaders' Declaration. The approach is intended to build on long-term G7 efforts for food security and nutrition such as the the L’Aquila Food Security Initiative, the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, the Land Partnerships and the Global Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Compact.
