Ending hunger: What would it cost?

Ending hunger: What would it cost?

The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) joined forces to estimate the cost of ending hunger by 2030, one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the world leaders in September 2015. Their findings show the goal is achievable and affordable: rt would cost USD 11 billion a year in additional public investment to largely end hunger in developing countries ; and donors would need to provide USD 4 billion of the total—which is a 3 per cent increase on current aid levels. Five categories of spending are identified: social safety nets, farm support (fertilizer and seed subsidies, capital investments, R&D, improved technology, extension services...), rural development (Infrastructure, education, storage, market access and value chains), enabling policies (land reform, tax reform, trade and investment policies and institutional reform) and nutrition.
