Ending Hunger and Malnutrition: The role of public-private partnerships

Food security and adequate nutrition are a matter of life or death. They are integral to a wide range of development goals, as preconditions for sustainable, social, economic and human development. However, according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO, 2017), 800 million people still suffer from hunger and more than two billion from malnutrition (micronutrient deficiencies or forms of overnourishment), with Africa as the continent with the highest levels of vulnerability. 

This paper explores the role of public-private partnerships (PPPs) in reaching SDG number 2 (SDG 2): “ending hunger, achieving food security and improved nutrition, and promoting sustainable agriculture”
