Synthesis Report of the Nigeria Zero Hunger Strategic Review

The Federal Republic of Nigeria is committed to achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as well as measuring and monitoring progress towards the goals and targets that Heads of State and Government collectively agreed at the Special Summit of the United Nations held in September 2015. Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2 emphasizes the prominence of food security and nutrition in the Agenda, calling on member states to “End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture” by 2030. The principal targets of SDG 2 are ending hunger and ensuring access to safe, nutritious, and sufficient food; ending all forms of malnutrition; doubling the productivity and incomes of small-scale food producers; ensuring sustainable food production systems and implementing resilient agricultural practices; and maintaining the genetic diversity of seeds, plants, and animals. Supplemental measures to promote the achievement of the targets include increasing investment, correcting and preventing trade restrictions and distortions, and ensuring the proper functioning of food commodity markets.
