The stubbornly high hunger levels seen in recent years threaten to derail the 2030 Agenda. For the world to change course, the political gears must shift decisively. The international community must work to end conflicts; mitigate climate variability; reduce inequality; and invest in creating more equal and inclusive societies. Social protection programmes must be established – and scaled up dramatically where they already exist.
