Overview of food security and nutrition in Europe and Central Asia

In the framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, Sustainable Development Goal 2 aims to end hunger, achieve food security, improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture. It is a comprehensive goal covering the four dimensions of food security (food availability, access, utilization and stability) and nutrition, and it requires the systematic monitoring of progress made towards the SDG 2 indicators to provide valuable and regular evidence to Member States, regional bodies and international organizations. FAO has committed to monitoring trends in food security and nutrition at global, regional and national levels, jointly with its partners, within the framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
