MDG 1: Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger

MDG target: Halve, between 1990 and 2015, the proportion of people who suffer from hunger

Halving hunger is complex because it is integrally linked with achieving nearly all the MDGs. Malnutrition is a function of many factors, including poverty, inadequate water and sanitation, poor living environments, unhealthy diets and behaviours, and restricted access to education. Identifiable policies to increase food and nutrient availability are warranted to prevent nutritional disorders, particularly among underserved, hard-to-reach populations.
