- An End to Malnutrition in All Its Forms: Malnutrition is both a driver and an outcome of poverty and inequality. Undernutrition leading to stunting which causes irreversible damage to both individuals and society. Obesity in childhood is a growing problem in all regions. Ensuring universal access to nutritious food in the 1000-day window of opportunity between the start of pregnancy and a child’s second birthday is essential to prevent stunting. This should be supported by a multi-sectoral approach which includes nutrition-sensitive healthcare, water, sanitation, education, agriculture, social protection and specific nutrition interventions, coupled with initiatives that enable the empowerment of women.
- Access Adequate Food and Healthy Diets, for All People, All Year Round: Access to food that forms the basis of healthy and diverse diets is intricately linked to both rights– particularly equity and women’s rights.
- All food systems are sustainable: from production to consumption; Sustainable food systems deliver food security and nutrition for all in such a way that the economic, social and environmental bases to generate food security and nutrition for future generations are not compromised. The effects of climate change require sustainable and climate-compatible farming practices.
- Adapt all food systems to eliminate loss or waste of food: Minimizing food losses during production, storage, and transport, and the waste of food by retailers and consumers; empowering consumer choice; commitments by producers, retailers and consumers within all nations.

This involves improving people’s well-being through sustainable livelihoods: increasing smallholders’ income and productivity and decent rural employment.
