This week, we explore SDG 2, which calls for action from organizations and businesses to end hunger, achieve food security, improve nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture in their business strategy.

The Global Challenge:
According to the Sustainable Development Knowledge Platform, efforts to combat hunger and malnutrition have advanced significantly since 2000. Ending hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition for all, however, will require continued and focused efforts, especially in Asia and Africa. More investments in agriculture, including government spending and aid, are needed to increase capacity for agricultural productivity.
Here Is Your Business Opportunity:
Improved sustainable agriculture is critical as the world’s population grows and demand on global food systems intensifies. Thus, your entire supply chain can benefit from playing a critical role in designing and delivering effective, scalable, and practical solutions for food security and sustainable agriculture. 

How Business is Taking Action on SDG 2

For 20 years, they have been working to help uplift the local dairy industry and in 2014 launched their pioneering dairy develop program.

Skycision
Skycision’s mission is to help address Global Food Security by empowering growers across the world to enhance their yield potential through the early detection of stress and disease in their fields. They’ve deployed to over 80 vineyards in Napa Valley and have since expanded into Strawberries in the Salinas Valley and Row Crops in the Mid South.

With 2B people being added to the population by 2050, there is a need to increase food production by 70%. We can either change the way we farm, or find a way to do it better. Skycision is here to provide a solution to the global agriculture industry that helps farmers across the globe harvest the true potential of their farms.
